Canterbury Kenyon

Canterbury Kenyon invites all students, regardless of religious affiliation, sexuality, or gender identity, to convey the love of a gracious God to the world around us. We seek to deepen our faith through the liturgy and theology of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.

Community & Communion: Mondays 5:30-7:00pm

Come for food, fellowship, and prayer every Monday night at the Parish House (201 Brooklyn St). Over dinner chat about readings from the Bible and other spiritual texts. We conclude with Mass around the table. Come for dinner at 5:30, or drop by to at 4:00 to help cook. Not a great chef? We have jobs for everybody.

Prayer-based Bible Study: Thursdays 9pm

Canterbury students gather on Thursday evenings in the undercroft (basement) of the chapel for a Bible study based on Lectio Divina, the practice of praying with scripture. We also have donuts.
