150th Anniversary

Come to New Haven in the Spring for ECY’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary!

The Episcopal Church at Yale is preparing for a wonderful celebration of the old and the new: a campus ministry that is both steeped in tradition as the 2nd oldest Episcopal chaplaincy in the United States, and is positioned as one of the fastest growing and most innovative responses to the needs of young adults in today’s Episcopal Church. Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29, 2020 so PLEASE HOLD THE DATE!
