Campus Ministry

The focus of campus ministry in the Diocese of Milwaukee is found at St. Francis House (SFH) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW–Madison) and Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry (LECM) at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater (UW–Whitewater).

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

The life shared at SFH is shaped by the Episcopal tradition. (You don't have to know what that means to check out SFH and belong.) Among other things, being shaped by the Episcopal tradition means that baptism and holy communion are a big part of who Episcopalians 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. Visitors are welcome! Email the chaplain, visit our Facebook page, or give us a call at 608-514-1734. SFH would love to be in touch with you.

St. Francis House offers a scholarship, the George E. Frazer Scholarship, awarded annually to one returning student.  It also offers a House Fellows program for two young adults, who, with the support and direction of the chaplain and staff, practice ministry on campus, establish and grow relationships with members of the university community and across the state, coordinate events with local ministry partners, extend hospitality, and share in the daily upkeep of the Episcopal Center.

Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry (LECM)    LECM at UW–Whitewater is a college ministry by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and The Episcopal Church. Our goal is to engage with the college community in Whitewater, to create relationships and grow together as a community. LECM is located at 417 W. Main St., Whitewater, WI 53190.  Contact LECM at
