Dearest incoming students,

107 years ago, the Episcopal Church commissioned a chaplaincy at the University of Illinois. And since, this chaplaincy and parish have now served the students, faculty, and staff of UIUC, along with the wider Champaign-Urbana community.

To honor our mission as a college chaplaincy, students (and others) gather weekly on Wednesdays at 5:15 p.m. for worship, a free home cooked meal, lively conversation and friendship.

Make your pilgrimage to the Cross and experience the Resurrection this Holy Week and Eastertide. Child care will be provided at all evening services and on Easter Day, April 16, 2017.
