At the Anglican Episcopal House of Studies, Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do — through daily common prayer, the cultivation of friendship, and going deep in shared study of Scripture and the tradition of the church. 

AEHS gathers once a week on Tuesday evening for a community Eucharist and dinner which is open to everyone, including friends, spouses, children. The AEHS community also gathers for more informal social events, often at the homes of faculty and staff. These opportunities create an environment where friendships flourish and common bonds are forged amid the challenges and joys of the divinity school experience. AEHS students form lasting friendships for a lifetime of ministry together.

"The best word I can think of to describe AEHS is a family. The students and the faculty make AEHS what it is. This community is hospitable and welcoming, honest and forgiving, and we have a lot of fun! Regularly praying with peers and faculty creates a real sense of familiarity and unity among us."
