Campus Ministry

Boston College

The Episcopal Chaplaincy at Boston College is an active ministry of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff.  Weekly “family dinner” and worship, regular formation programs, local and global mission partnerships and a commitment to social justice ministries provide many connections to the Episcopal Church in Massachusetts and the world.  Boston College students also volunteer at numerous Episcopal ministry sites throughout the Diocese of Massachusetts all year around.

Harvard University

The Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard is a lively and welcoming community of Harvard undergraduate and graduate students who gather weekly for worship, fellowship, study and service.  In partnership with Christ Church, Cambridge, the chaplaincy offers Harvard students all of the resources of the Episcopal Church’s rich tradition of beautiful liturgy, sophisticated and relevant theological reflection and a deep commitment to social justice and outreach.  At the heart of the community's life together is a weekly Eucharist offered on Sundays at 5:30 p.m. at Christ Church (Zero Garden Street), followed by supper and conversation in the Parish Library.

Tufts University

The Protestant Chaplaincy at Tufts University is an interdenominational and radically welcoming community of undergraduate and graduate students.  The chaplaincy focuses on worship, fellowship, spiritual formation, outreach, community service, interfaith dialogue and student leadership development. Our 7 p.m. Sunday worship service visually reflects its diversity.

Recent partnerships include support for a Korean student worshiping community and ongoing collaborations with the Tufts Africana Center. The Tufts Protestant Chaplaincy is also currently supporting and networking with graduate students at Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts Medical School and Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition.

Services are led by chaplain Daniel Bell and the liturgy is grounded in the Anglican/Episcopal tradition. Local Episcopal priests preach and celebrate the Eucharist, and local ministers from other Protestant denominations are often invited to preach as well. Students are empowered to be the leaders of the community and lead Scripture and book studies and organize volunteer outreach and fellowship events.
