Welcome to the UMW Canterbury website!

Our ministry has changed for the 2014-2015 academic year: we are now The House: Episcopal Lutheran Campus Ministry, overseen by Pastor Anne Jones at Christ Lutheran Church.  For more information, please check out our new webpage here.

 

The University of Mary Washington Canterbury Episcopal & Lutheran Campus Ministry is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church and Christ Lutheran Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

 

The mission of Canterbury is to offer opportunities for students, faculty, and employees of the University of Mary Washington to rest, study, worship, have fun, serve, and grow in faith.  A big part of the Canterbury ministry is the Canterbury House, where most of our activities take place.  The members of Canterbury are mostly Episcopalians/Anglicans and Lutherans, but others come from a variety of denominational and faith backgrounds.  We are male and female, straight and gay, conservative and progressive (and in between).  Some of us are well established in our beliefs, and others are questioning their faith.  All of us are part of a loving and supportive community of disciples who are helping each other follow the Way of Jesus, who calls us to a life of radical hospitality by loving God, loving one another, and loving ourselves.
