The Rector, Chris Girata, announced today that Saint Michael and All Angels will initiate a new campus ministry at SMU this fall and that The Rev. Rich Towers will lead the program.

“This is an important new ministry for Saint Michael,” said Chris Girata, Rector, “and Fr. Towers will join the staff on a part-time basis to direct it.  It will enable us to bring an Episcopal Church presence to the campus which has been dormant at SMU for several years, and infuse new vitality into Saint Michael’s ministry to young adults.  I encourage parishioners – especially SMU alums,” the Rector said, “to support Rich with their ideas and participation.”

Fr. Towers notes, “Campus ministry matters!  We have an exciting opportunity to engage and support SMU students as they grow and transform themselves and their world.  Our goal is passionate engagement around matters of faith and an ever-deepening life in Christ.”

The Rev. Towers will continue in his role as the Lower School Chaplain at the Episcopal School of Dallas and assisting in Sunday worship services at Saint Michael.
