EUL Multi-Faith Centre

The EUL Multi-Faith Centre has been created to help understand and support religious and spiritual pluralism with the aim of freeing  the mind, body and soul from prejudisim and discrimination towards religion.

The Centre offers religious and spiritual services to all student communities of EUL in a friendly and cosy environment.

The Centre is located at the heart of the campus and has been established to build positive relationships for believers of a specific  faith or religion, those who are seeking for guidance, those who prefer not to define their spirituality and those who chose not to have any religious beliefs at all.

Facilitations of the Multi-Faith Centre:

•             Extending religious traditions through worship, prayers and informative platforms

•             Promoting and teaching multi-faith living

•             Creating togetherness, peace and harmony

•             Helping fellow Students “Find Their Way”

•             Sharing religious beliefs through dialogue and events

Principles of the EUL Multi-Faith Centre:

•             Spirituality is a part of human nature and always has room for growth in recognizing and supporting improvement

•             Religious pluralism has paramount importance in the multi-faith and multi-cultural nature of the University student community

•             Learning how to respect religous beliefs and practices among students
