Welcome to the Episcopal Center at UC Berkeley



Welcome is more than a word, it is an act of hospitality. At the chaplaincy to Cal we offer welcome through community, safe space for spiritual and intellectual growth, and meaningful times of beauty and prayer.

The semester is drawing rapidly to a close. As exams and final projects pick up take some time for peaceful worship with candles and chant   on Thursdays at 6:30PM. Following around 7:15 we have dinner and some conversation time including stimulating speakers. We have one final talk on December 5th. That evening we will also have our carol service at 6:30. Start the advent season off right with us that evening. 

CALEPISCOPAL – WHO ARE WE?

Cal Episcopal is many things. We offer a spiritual home to students from, or interested in, the Episcopal and Anglican Tradition. We are also a center dedicated to serving as a bridge of critical inquiry between the academic life and the spiritual life. The idea of the university was born from the understanding that the human mind was a divine gift created for exploration and contemplation. We continue that tradition.

We also offer a place for spiritual growth. Many people associate Christianity with judgment and ignorance. The Episcopal Church is a welcoming place – regardless of gender or sexual identity, race, class  – we try to be open.

Go forth into the world in peace; be of good courage; hold fast that which is good; render to no one evil for evil; strengthen the fainthearted; support the weak; help the afflicted; honor everyone; love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
