St. Bede's Chapel 

Scheduled Gatherings:

Sundays 10:30 a.m. Worship (Anglican communion) 

The Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario has cancelled all corporate worship services and church gatherings effective Sunday March 15. This means that there are currently NO worship services scheduled at St. Bede's.

We have moved chapel serices online on Discord - join us! 

The Chapel is open 24 hours a day (for Renison residents) and may be used as a quiet place for prayer or meditation. It is accessible for anyone living elsewhere whenever the college is open. In addition to this, by booking with the Chaplain, it is available to musicians or musical groups as practice space, or by other groups for any purpose consistent with its basic nature as a place of worship and prayer. A schedule of bookings is posted each term outside the chapel.

St. Bede's Chapel

St. Bede's Chapel is located on the 2nd floor of the  Luxton Building at the west end of the Great Hall (near the Residence Office.) You can also enter directly from the upper parking lot. Current information on chapel services and events can be found in the Facebook group "St. Bede's Chapel". If inclement weather necessitates cancelling worship, this will be posted on the Facebook group as well as noted on the chaplain's voice-mail (519-884-4404 ext. 28604)
