Student pastor aka university chaplain

Centria has a student pastor. He is an Evangelic Lutheran reverend in Kokkola Parish.  

He is available for all the students and the faculty regardless of anybody’s religion or denomination - or any other feature. You are safe to come as you are.

Contacting him is confidential and free of charge.

You can contact the student pastor for example, when

  • you wish to talk to someone about anything going on in your life. No topic is too small or too big or forbidden.
  • you are interested in talking or learning more about a philosophical or theological topic.
  • you need more information about church ceremonies (such as marriage, blessing of a marriage, prayer for the spouses, blessing of home or baptism).
  • you wish to have confirmation training (rippikoulu).
  • you’d like to organize a student gathering and need help with that.
  • you are interested in meeting other students in casual atmosphere – welcome to join me in Student evenings at Backstage.
  • something else – you name it! 


Student pastor doesn’t have a permanent office in the campus.
