The Episcopal Church Welcomes You!
Episcopal Campus Ministry at Indiana Unviersity welcomes all new
and returning students to our fellowship! ECM is a nesting place
for students, faculty, and staff to embrace and explore their
spirituality in an accepting environment where inquiry is deemed a
natural and healthy part of faith. See more in our ministry video!
Our life together is marked by Sunday Mass at 4pm at Canterbury
House (719 E 7th St - just across from Dunn Meadow and the IMU!).
After we are fed spiritually, we continue with a home-cooked meal
and lively discussion over the dinner table.
A mid-week service is
held at 5:15pm at Trinity Episcopal Church (111 S. Grant St - on
Kirkwood), beginning August 15th.
Weekly bible study meets on Wednesdays from 5:30-7pm with snacks

Waycross Camp and Conference Center
Facebook Event |
Join the Diocese of Indianapolis Campus Ministries for a student retreat at Waycross Camp and Conference Center in beautiful Brown County.
The retreat theme is "Sabbath time", focusing on how even God made time to rest on the 7th day and that Jesus made time for rest throughout his ministry.
Recognizing that we are students, the weekend will have equal parts structured programs and unstructured time for study, homework, relaxation, and camp activities. On Saturday night there will be a bonfire, followed by compline. Sunday morning will feature brunch and Eucharist.
The cost of the retreat is $50, covering 2 nights and 5 meals.
For more information, contact the retreat coordinator, Jaimie Murdock at email@example.com.
Fall at Canterbury
The Fall Semester was kicked off in earnest with the 7th Street Block Party and our neighbors at La Casa, the GLBT Center, and the Office of Student Ethics on August 23rd. We then had the annual Faith Fest in Dunn Meadow, followed by the first eucharist of the academic year. On September 15th, +Bishop Cate Waynick made her annual pastoral visit and stayed for fellowship with the students, faculty, and staff of Canterbury House. At the end of September, 5 Canterburians went to St. Meinrad's Archabbey for the ECM Fall Retreat.
In October, Canterbury received a donation of six beautiful stained glass windows from the Diocese of Massachussets. More information
Summer at Canterbury
Life at Canterbury outside the academic year has been filled with
vitality and vigorous gatherings of the community. In May and
June, Mother Linda was travelling abroad and we were blessed to
have Father Charles Allen from Grace Unlimited at Butler University
and Mother Whitney Rice from St. David's Bean Blossom celebrate
Eucharist and join us for fellowship.
Five Canterburians travelled to Chicago on June 26-29 for the
Shared Space Conference on Young Adult and Campus Ministries,
learning many lessons about mission and ministry formation.
Finally, ECM has had two special fellowship events. A summer
grill-out was hosted by Jake Hardesty after the June 2nd service.
Then, on July 7th, we celebrated a boat Eucharist at the home of Tom
and Sara Wood.
