ECUT supports the following programs at the St. George campus:
Qu(e)erying Religion (QR) – An intimate and open space for joyful, supported, life-giving queer spiritualities. QR programs foster dynamic encounters, uncommon conversations, and creative engagements at the intersections of gender identities, sexual orientations, cultures, religious faiths, and spiritual practices. Find QR on FB or check out the QR website.
Ecology and Spirituality – An exploration of the ways in which faith, religions and spiritualities interact with the world around us. For more info, follow us on FB.
Grief Support Sharing Circles -Everyone grieves in his or her own unique way. When someone you love dies, you may feel angry, isolated, sad, guilty or lonely. The grief support sharing circle is an informal, drop-in mutual support group for students who have experienced a death, as well as students experiencing anticipatory grief. The grief support sharing circles will resume again in September 2018. If you need grief support, please contact a chaplain or off-campus resources : Bereaved Families of Ontario and Toronto Distress Centre for suicide loss.
The Student Christian Movement (SCM) – The SCM is a student-led movement passionate about justice, community and spirituality, engaging the prophetic teachings of the revolutionary Jesus. As an ecumenical movement, the SCM includes people of many faiths and beliefs seeking to explore and challenge the Christian tradition. The SCM at U of T hosts radical Bible studies, creative workshops, and discussions. Follow the SCM University of Toronto on FB for events and programs.
Worship and Prayer – ECUT promotes and participates in worship opportunities at both our base colleges, Emmanuel College and Knox College, and on an ecumenical basis.
