University Ministry

In the first chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus called out to Philip saying, “Follow me.” And Philip invited his friends along saying, “Come and see.”

University Ministry is an invitation to students and our UNC community members to “come and see,” finding companions in exploration of our faith lives during a season of academic study, vocational discernment, and learning the life skills of “adulting.”

Student leaders, parish mentors, faculty and staff connect in many ways through our parish-based, diocesan-sponsored Episcopal Campus Ministry.

Episcopal Campus Ministry (ECM) is a registered student organization at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. During the academic year we gather for a weekly in-person, student-led programs on Tuesdays at 5:30 PM where we check-in and support fellow students with conversation and prayers. This is followed by a delicious, home-cooked free dinner at 6:30 PM. We also connect for service-learning projects and Bible study, and small groups that deepen our spiritual lives and friendships.

The Chaplain Is In!

Undergraduate Student Chaplains work together to create a welcoming community and student-led programming for ECMers!

Graduate Students, Faculty and Staff are also served by ECM and Chaplain Mary Cat through monthly and quarterly gatherings and one-on-one appointments.  If you are affiliated with UNC or a higher education institution and would like to learn more, we’d love to hear from you!

Chaplain Mary Cat is an ordained priest on staff at The Chapel of the Cross. Students can make an appointment for coffee, conversation, prayers, questions, and companionship during your time as a student here at UNC.
