Episcopal Campus Ministry to the University of Washington

Our campus minstry has a long-running history at UW, beginning in the early 1900s. It currently meets as The Sanctuary, a joint effort with the campus ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It is co-led by our rector, Rev. Shelly Fayette, Lutheran minister Rev. Elizabeth Rawlings, and some amazing student leaders.

"We are a community of people living in and around the University of Washington working together to figure out how to live in better relationship with God, one another and creation.

We're just trying to figure out how to navigate life with love and integrity and to keep our hope for the future intact. Together, we worship, play, pray, dance, do yoga, hike, eat, meditate, make art, conversate and much more.

We are a Q Center Safe Zone and a Reconciling In Christ ministry (a designation given to ELCA ministries who are supportive of the LGBTQ+ community). We engage in interfaith conversation and relationship. We do our best to live out the radical, gracious love of God in Jesus Christ.
