Who We Are

A place where progressive Christianity and traditional worship meet. We are a college chapel on the campus of the University of Miami. A local congregation always worships here. Sunday mornings feel more like a small parish; Sunday evenings feel more like a college chapel.

What to Expect

What are services like?
People in the Episcopal Church are, by and large, open-minded and we don't expect everyone to believe exactly the same way. Our worship services tend to be very stylized, even when they are informal. We (almost) always have communion. Our service is a mix of word and sacrament: Old Testament reading, (non-Gospel) New Testament reading; Gospel reading; sermon; communion. Our 6PM college student service is more informal and uses various formats.

What is the community like?
Our college students are a mix of Episcopalians, Lutherans, seekers, people of various other denominations. Our morning congregation is mostly Episcopalians, with a few Roman Catholics and others.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome. If you are seeking God, or a relationship with God, then you are on the same path that we are. If we can share even a part of that journey with you, we will be glad.
