St Anselm's Episcopal Chapel Center’s four core values are Spiritual Formation, Sacramental Life, Local Mission and Service, and Leadership Development.
Our community seeks to nurture balanced living characterized by study, worship, mission and spiritual depth. This focus is at the heart of our common life in Jesus Christ at the Episcopal Chapel Center.
Since my arrival in October 2016, I have been listening for God’s holy leading as I partner with the Holy Spirit to bring forth the re-emergence of St. Anselm’s Episcopal Chapel Center at USF as a vibrant spiritual resource. Jesus said that we are the light of the world, and a city built on a hill cannot be hid (Matthew 5:14). I am full of hope that the growing presence here will position the Chapel Center as a beacon of Christ’s light in this community and beyond.

St. Catherine of Alexandria Episcopal Church Vestry Retreat, February 2019
"Our Vestry spent a day in a working retreat at the St. Anselm’s Chapel Center. We began with Morning Prayer in the Chapel, then spent the day in the Center. It is a beautiful, open, peaceful space with plenty of room for a full Vestry around the big table, plus a breakout room to use if needed. A great “getaway” retreat space - highly recommended!"
