From the Episcopal Students Association:
We will be having service this Sunday in Cathedral room 324 at 11 am. I hope to see you all there!
I have discovered that not only are we not able to do any sort of fundraising in Towers lobby past 6 pm, we are also not allowed to sell any sort of baked good that is not commercially made and pre-packaged in Towers. If we want to sell homemade baked goods, we would have to find another location such as the Union or Posvar. Please email me back and let me know how you guys think we should handle this situation.
Our organization has officially been re-certified!
Please email me if you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions.
Have a great Thursday!
Heinz Chapel is closed for the Spring Semester, 2015, so that climate control can be installed. Information about local Episcopal churches is available in the right-hand column of this blog. Episcopal students are also welcome to attend the services at the Lutheran University Center on Forbes Ave (just west of Craig, opposite the Carnegie Museum). The Episcopal Students Association is meeting on January 11th to plan other events, and an announcement will be posted as soon as information is available.
Hope 2015 brings tons of blessings your way…
There will be no service at Heinz Chapel on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 30th. The following Sunday, December 7th, is the last Sunday of the semester, and the service that day will be the last till 2015.
Heinz Chapel will be closed for construction for the whole of the Spring 2015 semester, and there will be no Sunday services. Episcopal Students are welcome to attend the Lutheran services at the Lutheran University Center, 4515 Forbes Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15238, time tba. Check http://lucpgh.com/ for details. In addition, we hope to have a weekly Bible study for Episcopal students; details will be available here before the end of the fall semester.
This semester we’re trying out a shared Sunday service with the Lutherans, and the Lutheran and Episcopal chaplains will take turns preaching and administering Communion. We begin on Sunday August 24th, when the Lutheran chaplain, Brian Bennett, will preach, and the Episcopal chaplain (me) will celebrate Communion. The Episcopal service will probably be a lot more relaxed and informal than you’re used to—come and check it out! The Lutheran service may be more traditional—we’ll find out when it’s their turn… We’re also eager for student participation; if you’d like to read one of the Scripture passages, or help with Communion, or play an instrument or sing, let me know!
We’ll also have a Wednesday lunch time Bible study in the Chaplains’ room on the 9th floor of the Wm Pitt Union; we’ll be reading Luke’s gospel, as well as talking about what it means to have the Word of God in writing. All welcome—bring your roommate, regardless of denomination or even religion. God’s word is for everyone!
Congratulations to all who graduated, and God bless you in your future endeavors; and for those still enrolled, we wish you a wonderful summer, and look forward to seeing you at our first service of the fall semester, at 11 am on Sunday August 24th, in Heinz Chapel.

Because of Spring Break, there will be no Sunday Service at Heinz Chapel on March 9th. There will be a service of Holy Communion on March 16th (11 am). Hope to see you there!
The weekly Student Service at Heinz Chapel begins at 11 am on Sunday January 12th. Students of all denominations and of none are invited to come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth His praise, to hear and reflect on His holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation.
