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 for you.


Road Trips

Throughout the year, we try to take advantage of all the great happenings around the Diocese—visiting 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 Diocesan 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

Sponsored by St. Alban’s
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 aware of.
