“Jesus reminds us to protect the vulnerable.”
An extravagant welcome to The Episcopal Church at Yale!
Celebrating our 150th year at Yale, ECY is both rich in tradition, and highly responsive to the radical ways in which church is changing in American life, especially among young adults. No longer a community that simply offers Episcopal worship, we have expanded to meet the needs of a new century and a new generation of young people who are the present of the church, not its future. We help form undergraduate and graduate students at Yale; help train seminarians / priests-to-be in working with young adults; and support young adults in the greater New Haven area between 21 and 35. In all these activities our historic focus remains unchanged, “Knowing, Loving and Serving God.”
ECY is run by and for college students and young adults, and our goal is to offer you a community in which you can grow to know, love, and serve God in whatever ways give you meaning and strength for your journey. Wherever you are on your journey, and whoever you are, you are welcome.
For ECY, radical inclusion is God’s idea behind creating the wildly diverse human race, so we welcome all of God’s children “from every tribe, language, people and nation,” as well as from every gender expression, race, ethnicity, immigration status, and economic background. We seek to support all young people – undergraduates, graduate students, and young adults – as leaders of the Episcopal Church, lay and ordained, in the present and in the future.
We do this through inspiring worship, in transforming community, and with a passion for service and justice.

“We must pray fervently, think humbly, and speak with the love Christ showed.”
“When we tap into the light within ourselves, we find pure joy and comfort in God. When we learn to see the light in others, our competitive instincts, pettiness, and judgments quiet down.”
“One of the most powerful ways we can respond to God’s love is to recognize, through our own transformation, the transforming power we ourselves have.”
