Campus Association for Baháʼí Studies at UW (CABS)

Campus Association for Baha'i Studies (CABS) is the UWaterloo club associated with the Baha'i Faith, a religion founded by Baha'u'llah whose central purpose is to establish the oneness of humanity.

The purpose of CABS is to gather friends to deepen on the teachings of God and the history and philosophy of the Baha'i Faith; as university students, to learn how to be of service to humanity in all the different aspects of our lives.

Examples of events we hold are devotionals and study sessions. Devotional gatherings consist of reading prayers and passages from religious texts in an informal and reverent atmosphere followed by thoughtful discussion. Study sessions are more structured spaces to explore the Baha'i perspective on varying subjects. They involve research, lively consultation and an open mind in order to redefine our understanding of our material and spiritual realities.
