Below is information about student and chaplaincy groups associated with the Faith & Life Centre on campus.
Big Questions is a club devoted to discussing difficult concepts for a better understanding of so-called “big questions” involving society, philosophy, religion, politics, science, etc. We foster an inquisitive and intellectual atmosphere that bridges the gap between classroom learning and life experience.
Big Questions is a BUSU club that originated with and is sponsored by the Ecumenical Chaplaincy. It is secular club open to all Brock students.
No matter where you are on your faith journey, the Brock Catholic Students’ Association can help you cultivate, deepen and live the true beauty of the Catholic Faith. We are emboldened by the words of our Holy Father, “I ask you, instead, to be revolutionaries, to swim against the tide; yes, I am asking you to rebel against this culture…” (Pope Francis, WYD, 2013).
With enthusiasm we will respond to this challenge by helping students enrich their faith through active participation in the Sacraments, programs of faith-formation, apostolic activities and fellowship. Come join us, we are your Catholic home on campus.
For more information on upcoming events and how you can get involved please visit our website.
Brock Chabad is pulsating with activity, excitement, joy, and Jewish pride. Our array of programming includes weekly deli lunches, holiday events and baskets, national and international weekend retreats, weekly Shabbat dinners facilitated at the Zaltzman’s Rohr Chabad House (located a few minutes walk from campus), and counseling from our full-time campus Rabbi.
The Brock Chabad Student Board is the guiding force behind Chabad student events. If you are interested in having the opportunity to bring quality, fun programs to campus and working with a great group of students, the Chabad Student Board might be for you. Email and let us know.
We love students.
More importantly, so does Jesus. That’s why we’re on your campus. We’re creating come-as-you-are spaces where there’s a spot on the couch reserved just for you. If you have questions about God, ask away! Regardless of where you’re from or what you believe, we’d love for you to sit with us and discover the deep love and acceptance God has for you. Our groups offer weekly Bible studies, social events and outreach opportunities. Join us on campus – we can’t wait to meet you!
Maybe you have no idea who Jesus is, or what it means to be a Christian. Or maybe you’ve been in church your whole life, but are unsure about what it means to be in a relationship with God. No matter where you are on your journey, we cannot wait to connect with you. The Ministry is a group for all students, with all sorts of questions, and all different beliefs. You are welcome here.
The Ministry is lead by Chaplain Zack DeBruyne of the Christian Reformed Church (CRC) on the Brock Campus.
