Here at the Episcopal Church Center at the University of Miami we welcome YOU. Yes, you! Whatever your creed, race, nationality, or sexual orientation you are welcome to be part of our community. The only requirement is that you want to be here!
We are here to serve all students at the University of Miami. By no means are all of our Chapel students Episcopalian. We typically have Lutherans, Roman Catholics, members of the United Church of Christ, Presbyterians, and others. Even people of no specific belief and other seekers have also been part of our worshiping community over the years. Any and all students who are interested in joining us are welcome.
We have a student worship service Sunday evenings at 6:00, followed by a free student supper in the Chapel courtyard. (You don't have to come to church to join us for supper!) On Wednesdays we have a free yoga class at 6:30 p.m., led by a trained yoga instructor. Fr. Frank leads a brief meditation at the beginning and end of the yoga classes.
Starting this semester, UKirk, a campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church USA, will have a Taize gathering in our chapel Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. If you're not familiar with Taize, it's a modern form of chant designed to promote meditation. The Taize community is an ecumenical community in France founded in the wake of World War II.
Through weekly worship, student suppers, yoga, discussions, and special events, we encourage discourse in our community on all subject matters.
