In the Fall of 2020, with the help and support of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, St. Alban's began partnering with the Kerns Religious Life Center at Capital University to minister to the unique spiritual needs of our campus neighbors.
Last semester parishioners, students and community members met on Wednesday evenings for Trek: Run, Walk, Pray. Following Evening Prayer and discussion, participants set out into the Bexley Community for a run, walk or cycle.
In addition to Trek, students and parishioners partnered to support "Becoming Beloved Community," an anti-racism prayer vigil held on the labyrinth at St. Alban's. Fr. Devin held on campus pet blessings with student for St. Francis Day, and provided a time of fellowship and prayer weekly at the Capital University Fountains.
In October students from Capital, Otterbein, Ohio State, and Franklin University participated in a Holy Hike Eucharist along the Scioto Mile trail in Columbus.
St. Alban's is excited about this partnership, and we look forward to the many ways God will bring our communities together to love and serve the Lord.
God loves you! No Exceptions! The LGBTQIA+ small group for Capital students is currently meeting via Zoom Wednesdays at 5 PM. If you are interested in learning more about this group, or have questions about queer identity and faith, feel free to reach out to Fr. Devin Rodgers
Come hang out with Fr. Devin and Wallee, the church beagle, every Wednesday afternoon at Capital University's Center for Faith and Learning. If school is in session, they'll be there. Weather permitting they will be at the Capital Fountains.
