From father gary thorne, chaplain, TO INCOMING STUDENTS:

Are you Christian? Atheist? Jewish? Humanist? Muslim? Neo-Pagan? Buddhist? Zoroastrian?

You won’t be the same once you study at King’s! Your studies and your friendships will challenge you, both to enter more deeply into your own tradition, and to gain a new respect for the spiritual exercises of others.


FR. DEACON NICHOLAS HATT & Colin nicole are to be ordained:

On Friday, June 24, Fr. Deacon Nicholas Hatt – the Dean of Students at the University of King's College – will be ordained as a priest. Colin Nicole will be ordained as a transitional deacon.



Do you enjoy peaceful solitude? Vibrant community?

The King's College Chapel offers various opportunities to explore the wilderness of Nova Scotia – one of the most beautiful places in creation. We make an early-morning pilgrimage to an Orthodox monastery; we canoe around St. Anne's Camp for Thanksgiving; we live in community at Mersey River.
