Although Canterbury of Clemson is a fully recognized club at Clemson University, it is funded by Holy Trinity and is very active within the parish at all levels.

  • Canterbury has a breakfast team that cooks the Sunday parish breakfast every couple of months
  • Canterbury members are lectors and intercessors for Holy Eucharist
  • At least twice a year, Canterbury designs and leads a Sunday Holy Eucharist, called “Canterbury Sunday”
  • Canterbury travels with the parish to the Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, NC every spring as part of the parish’s retreat weekend.
  • Canterbury members serve on various parish ministry groups.

Canterbury is also designated one or two football games a year to do parking at the church as a means to fund raise.

Canterbury participates in a number of activities on and off campus:

  • Habitat for Humanity’s Blitz Build during Homecoming
  • The annual community-wide CROP Walk for Hunger
  • Host tailgates during football season at Holy Trinity
  • A fall retreat to the mountains of TN or NC

Holy Trinity encourages Canterbury members to be as active in the parish as possible with hopes that the parish becomes a safe “home-away-from-home church” for the students during their time at Clemson, Tri County Tech, or SWU.
