Chaplaincy Services

CU-MSA is fortunate to offer Chaplaincy Services

We welcome you all to the Chaplaincy Services that the CU-MSA offers in order to provide you with a safe and inclusive environment to speak with our chaplains. The goal of the Muslim Chaplaincy Services is to augment a Muslim student identity for students by providing support, mentorship, counselling, and guidance. The chaplains are previous students who went through the same experiences that most Muslim students are facing daily. Feel free to grab this opportunity and have a word with one of our chaplains Sr. Nimao Ali, Br. Osama Berrada or Dr. Reda Bedeir.
