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 into our community. The only requirement is that you want to be here!
We are here to serve all students at the University of Miami. The words “Episcopal“ and “Lutheran“ do not describe whom we are here to serve; rather they describe what we have to offer. Any and all students who are interested in joining us are welcome.
Through weekly worship, student suppers, discussions, and special events, we encourage discourse in our community of all subject matters. For sixteen years we have been working in partnership with a local Lutheran pastor (Pastor Arnold Perry) in our student ministry on campus. By no means are all of our Chapel students Episcopalian or Lutheran. We typically have Baptists, Roman Catholics, members of the United Church of Christ, Presbyterians, and many others too. Even people of no specific belief and other seekers have also been part of our worshiping community.
So if you're looking for friendly faces, activities and a welcoming safe space, mosey on over!
March 29: 8AM, 10AM, & 6PM..This day marks Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and also his passion & death. The beginning of Holy Week.
April 2: 7PM. This night we remember the Last Supper and Jesus' arrest. We share a meal reminiscent of the Last Supper, have communion, and end by removing all adornments from the chapel. The perfect set-up for Good Friday!
April 3: 12 Noon & 7PM. This day we remember Jesus' death. The service is by design austere.
Saturday, April 4, 8:30 PM. This is the most ancient way to celebrate Easter. We begin in total darkness, review salvation history by candlelight, and end celebrating the resurrection with full light and music.
APRIL 5: 10AM. One service only. No 6PM student service. Students join us for Easter dinner at Chaplain's home at 4PM.
Spring semester every third week we will begin our 6PM student worship upstairs in the student lounge. We'll begin by viewing a segment of Living the Questions, DVD series covering such topics as "Taking the Bible Seriously" and "Debunking the Rapture." We'll have an open discussion then head into the chapel for communion.
Weekly student worship service, Sundays, 6PM. (We also have Sunday morning services at 8:00 & 10:00).
Sundays at 7PM.
