St. Francis House Episcopal Student Center

"For the love of God and neighbors"

About Us

Welcome, Friends!

St. Francis House is a non-residential community of students and young adults committed to growing closer to Jesus, one another, and our neighbors at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. You'll find the Chapel - as well as pleasant spaces for study and recreation that are open to everyone - at 1011 University Ave, across from Lathrop Hall and between the X01 apartments and Luther Memorial Church.


Our life together is shaped by the Episcopal tradition. (You don't have to know what that means to come and belong.) Among other things, being shaped by the Episcopal tradition means that baptism and holy communion are a big part of who we believe God calls each one of us to be. And also that the Christian life is best walked with friends.


The community is primarily made up of students and young adults and is open to anyone. Please look around and reach out to us through the contact box, if you'd like. We would love to be in touch. We're glad you're here.


Ask Questions. Practice Faith. Embrace Challenge. Grow in Christ.
