Standing Strong

Led by Alumni and run by cadets, St. Alban’s Anglican Chapel is here for you. We understand the rigors of cadet life and we want to support you as you meet the academic, physical, and military challenges of this unique institution.

About Us

Welcome!

We’re a community of cadets, alumni, and friends of The Citadel seeking to hear, believe, and put into practice the good news of Jesus. Though we’re a ministry of the Anglican Church in North America, our community belongs to Jesus. Therefore we welcome everyone who wishes to follow Jesus or explore his claims in the midst of our community.

Monday Gatherings

We meet every Monday night during term at 1800 (6:00 p.m.) in the Summerall Chapel for food and fellowship. We begin worship at 1830 (6:30 p.m.). You can expect contemporary music, a relevant Gospel centered message, and weekly communion. On Thursdays we meet in the Greater Issues Room on the second floor of Mark Clark Hall at 1800 for dinner and Bible Study.

Office & Lounge

We have an office on the Third Floor of Mark Clark Hall where you are welcome to visit with our chaplain who is here daily from 9-4. He’s a graduate of The Citadel (Lima 03) and happy to discuss everything from how to shine your shoes, to how he became a Christian during cadre his Knob year. We also have a lounge where you’re free to relax, study, or fellowship with other St. Alban’s cadets.

The Road Less Traveled

Finally, if you’ve come to The Citadel seeking the “road less traveled,” you’ll find we’re seeking the same road in our relationship with Jesus. Our cadets are challenged not only to radically believe in Jesus, but to radically follow him in risky and profound ways. In our community, you’ll have the opportunity to serve Jesus locally and internationally in meaningful and even (occasionally!) dangerous ways.

St. Alban’s News

Our Vision

Our vision is twofold. First, we aim to see every member of the Corps of Cadets have the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ on an annual basis. Our goal is to explain his message clearly, honestly, and respectfully so that cadets might accept the truth about Jesus. Second, we aim to invite those who have believed or are exploring the Gospel into a community of Christian discipleship.

The Next Generation of Christian Service

Through training, prayer and scripture reading, it’s our hope that cadets be worshipers of God and lead at all levels, including teaching and preaching. Finally, we want our cadets to be active in service. There are plenty of opportunities to serve at The Citadel, but we also offer opportunities for service in Charleston as well as all over the world. To be a part of our community at St. Alban’s is to be invited into an exciting, risky, and global adventure.

Periodically we post Transformation Stories of cadets in whom we have seen this vision come to life.

Support

St. Alban’s relies entirely on prayers and contributions from Students, Alumni, Faculty, Family and Friends to carry out the ministry. Our board is made up of dedicated alumni and friends without whom we would not be able to carry out the ministry.

In addition to your prayers your financial support enables us to proclaim the good news of Jesus at The Citadel.
