Canterbury House of Lawrence

St. Anselm Canterbury House is an Episcopal Campus Ministry that gathers in faith on Tuesday nights for food, fellowship and fun. Students describe Canterbury as an oasis, a family, a place to be yourself and we hope this for all who walk through our doors.

We serve KU, Haskell, Washburn and Baker Universities and welcome all college-aged students and young adults from our community. You don’t have to be an Episcopalian to join us. All are invited into the full life and worship of Canterbury, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, culture, and/or physical and mental ability. ALL ARE WELCOME!
