Fr. Kondwani Mwenegamba

Chaplains not only provide a “safe space” for heart-to-heart dialogue, they also embody it. They exercise what theologians call a ministry of presence. That is why this office is available to all students for their moral and spiritual life. The chaplain is Rev. Fr. Kondwani Mwenegamba.

Religious Groups
