About Our Chapel Community
We are the Episcopal Church Center at the University of Miami, located on campus right by the main entrance to the campus. As such, we have a dual identity: college chapel and parish-like church.
As a college chapel we fall within the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Miami. We are here to serve the entire UM community: students, faculty, and staff. As a local congregation we reflect the diversity of the community: we are young, middle-aged, and old, single, families with young children, white (called “Anglos” in Miami), Black (mostly Caribbean), and a few Latinos.
Our Sunday morning services have the feel of a fairly typical Episcopal small parish church. Our Sunday evening service has more the feel of a college chapel.
The UM/Canterbury Preschool, serving the University of Miami community, is located on our site. The Preschool has 92 children from age 3 months through 4 years
