St. Francis Canterbury House is an Episcopal Campus Ministry that gathers in faith on Monday 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.

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!
