The Episcopal Church at Rowan University is a consortium of Episcopal parishes who have banded together around a common goal: to share with the students, faculty and staff of Rowan University the Good News of a God who loves us.

The spring semester of 2020 got cut short by Covid-19. We await news about how the fall semester will happen as we consider how we might best serve the Rowan Community. Please be in touch to let us know what your plans are and how you would like to be involved with TEC@RU!
For the spring semester of 2020, our weekly offerings were:
Afternoon prayer and Lectio Divina
This prayer and meditation session draws from two spiritual practices in the Christian monastic life. Monastic devotional practice includes a scheduled pattern of prayers throughout the day, as a reminder that God is present with us in all the activities of our daily life. We will be using a prayer form based on the Noonday Prayer service in the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer; it includes a Psalm, a Scripture reading, and a time of silent meditation. This will be followed by Lectio Divina, an ancient practice of engaging a phrase or sentence from Scripture in a contemplative way, as a path to finding communion with God. We encounter the Scripture passage in four stages: reading, meditation, prayer, and contemplation. The goal is not analysis and study, but rather using Scripture as a starting point for a time of meditation.
Prayers will be led by Dr. Nancy Tinkham in the Interfaith Spirituality Exploration Center (ISEC), Mondays 2:30-3:00 and Fridays 1:00-1:30, throughout the Spring 2020 semester.
All are welcome, regardless of your faith background or where you are in your spiritual journey.
We meet every Wednesday night while school is in session (fall and spring) at 6pm at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church (next to the Landmark, across from Holly Pointe Commons). Read all about it!
