Worship Downtown

Worship with CanterburyNYC Downtown comes in many forms, depending on the season. 

During the academic year (September to May) Canterbury Downtown meets weekly for Sunday night Eucharist and dinner at Grace Church.

On Sunday evenings, students gather for Holy Communion, (prayers and the sharing of bread and wine,) at 6 p.m. in companionship with members of Grace Episcopal Church at 10th Street and Broadway.

Students and community members gather for story, song, prayer, and the ancient mandate that we remember Christ when we break bread and drink wine together.  We do this in the traditions of the Episcopal Church found in the Book of Common Prayer and other resources.

Worship is both personal and communal.  All are welcome – to join us, to ask questions, to watch and pray, to share in our fellowship, and to connect with God and one another.

Chaplain Mary Cat can be found at the 6 p.m. service at Grace throughout the summer as well.  Students in the area looking to connect can set up an appointment with Chaplain Mary Cat.

There’s an App for That!

Check out below some of the on the go resources and apps that you have at your fingertips for daily prayer, Bible study, and reflection.

The Bible Project

The Bible is one unified story that leads to Jesus, but we don't always treat it that way. At The Bible Project, we make animated videos that explore the books and themes of the Bible.

Recently, we viewed an Introduction to Acts in preparation for our Journey through Acts Bible Study.

Our Bible App

This app has access to Christian resources for devotional use that are progressive, LGBTQ+ affirming, and actively striving to lift up the voices of those on the margins that have traditionally quieted. Students interested in the $10 annual subscription, please contact Chaplain Mary Cat to assist with cost if needed! You can download the app by clicking here.
