Welcomes You

Episcopal Church at Cornell University

Director: 
The Rev. Clark R. West
Chaplain

We are a small but vibrant group of Cornell undergrads, grad students, faculty, staff, and people from Ithaca committed to campus ministry. We are a home away from home for students, and a place for professors to set aside their titles. Some of us were raised in the Episcopal Church or the Church of England; some of us were raised Roman Catholic or Protestant or without any religion at all. We are an inclusive community which welcomes to full participation people from every race, sexuality, gender and level of ability.

Our life together is grounded in the weekly celebration of the Eucharist.When we baptise, we pray for an “inquiring and discerning heart” - we love to ask questions, and through study programs, sermons, and our observances throughout the liturgical year, we come to know God together as we deepen our knowledge of theology and the church.

Our members take an active role in every service - greeting visitors, reading scripture aloud, leading prayers, serving as acolytes.

Our schola (choir) is a fluid group made up mostly of undergrads and graduate students who lead the congregation in singing hymns, offer weekly choral anthems, and provide music for special services. Singers are welcome to join the schola at any time.
