Young Adult and Capital U Student Ministries

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 students 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.
