Taizé on Sundays, 5 pm, St. Alban's Chapel
This service of Evening Prayer borrows its musical style
from a community of monks in
Taizé, France who have created simple chants with a contemporary feel.
The service is simple, meditative, and casual. It is followed by a free
home-cooked dinner. All
are welcome to the service and to dinner or just to one if that’s what works
Throughout the year, we try to take advantage of all the
great happenings around the
local churches for Sunday morning or special worship services and going as a
group to various educational and social events.
Plans are in the works for a
Campus Ministry Retreat in March 2008. Details will follow.
Province VIII, of which we are a part, sponsors an annual Student
Gathering each spring gathering students from the Pacific and Southwestern
states. This year’s retreat will take place in Salt Lake City. More
details will be available in the winter.
Faith and Reason Series
We are called as full, whole human persons to know and love God. Jesus
summarizes the Torah of his ancestors by saying, “you shall love the Lord
your God with your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and your neighbor as
yourself.” There are many ways that our faith is challenged by contemporary
issues and concerns, and it will be the focus of this series to have
conversations where the heart and mind meet.
Service and Outreach
One of the functions of the Episcopal Campus Ministry and
the Chaplain is to serve as a resource for students interested in service
projects or engaging in various forms of social action or other ministry.
Following are some opportunities for ministry and social action that we are
