Protestant Campus Ministry

Protestant Chaplain






Sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts

We are an inclusive, open-minded, and progressive Christian community on the UMass Dartmouth campus that seeks to follow Jesus in his way of love and justice through weekly worship, spirituality programs, small group gatherings and community service projects in the wider community.  Our commitment to social justice provides many connections to the Episcopal Church in our local area and the world.


About us

The Protestant Campus Ministry offers students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to be part of a community that is seeking to grow in their personal faith journey and to help make a difference in the world by helping others.     We want to share our faith with you and we want to be nourished by your faith.  We strive to provide a listening and supportive presence on your life journey by offering pastoral care for anyone on campus.  We gather throughout the academic year to share meals, to celebrate liturgy and the sacraments, and to engage in community service and outreach to the wider world.  There are opportunities for faith sharing and discussion groups as well as a LGBTQ+ Christian Spirituality Group.  The Protestant Campus Ministry stands for the inclusion of all people and extends a radical welcome to the LGBTQ+ community.  All are welcome regardless of self-image, life-story, sexual orientation or gender identity.  We invite people of every race, color, national and ethnic origin, age, religious background, veteran status, ability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression to bring the fullness of who they are into this community.


Weekly Celebration of Holy Eucharist

We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (351 Elm Street in Dartmouth) at 10:00AM and at other times during the year. 

***During Covid-19, our worship service is being live streamed at and achieved for viewing on the website.  Please check the Protestant Campus Ministry Facebook Page and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Facebook page for latest updates.
