Counselling for Students

University life is a great adventure! It is a time of change and of growth in all aspects of our life. But as with any adventure, there comes some challenges. 

Jane Waldock has joined the CPC community to help you by providing individual counselling (free of charge) on a regular basis at the College.

Catholic Faith Study

Catholic Faith Study

Fr. Lawrence will be instructing students on matters of the Catholic faith and guiding them through various provocative/controversial questions that often arise about it. People new to Catholicism will gain a foundational understanding of it, and those familiar with it will deepen their understanding of it.

Come check it out, there are no commitments involved - although, you'll probably get hooked!
