Important points

All prayer requests submitted through this portal will be given to the Campus Ministry Team (CMT) and will be reviewed by one or more members of the CMT. Please keep in mind that we are not qualified medical or psychological practitioners. Thus, whilst we can offer pastoral care we cannot offer psychological or other medical care.

There are members of the CMT who are not Priests. As such, these prayer requests are not protected by the ‘seal of confession’. It is important that you do not include confidential or sensitive personal information through this site. If you require pastoral care in relation to sensitive issues please call one of the CMT members directly and they will organise this for you. If your prayer request contains information which indicates that either you or another has or might breach the law, commit academic dishonesty, breach an employment duty, or breach or offend any ACU policy, procedure or guideline, we might escalate this information to Human Resources, the Office of General Counsel, or another internal or external body as appropriate. By proceeding you are agreeing to this.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your prayer requests and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Australian Catholic University Ltd with respect to any claim based upon the transmission, consideration and actioning of your prayer requests. Please remain courteous and thoughtful in your prayer requests at all times.

It is our intention to pray for every earnest request that you send to us. We look forward to supporting you through prayer and, if required, pastoral support as we pursue ACU Mission of honouring the dignity of the human person.
