Help Furnish a New Home for Campus Ministry
The current and future members of Canterbury Episcopal Campus Ministry in Harrisonburg, Virginia, have been given an amazing opportunity to design and construct a new home for their ministry. They hope to raise $25,000 to secure furniture to fill their home. The new Canterbury House will have a designated worship space (finally!), a larger kitchen, a dining room, gathering space and study “cave.” With your help, the Canterbury Episcopal Campus Ministry can fill these spaces with comfortable, durable furniture and make the Canterbury House a “home away from home” for our students. Donate today.
