Corgis & Crumpets Dean’s Date Celebration

Following our final Tuesday evening Holy Eucharist of the year, ECP served up English crumpets while partnering with The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of the Garden State (http://www.pwcorgiclubgs.org/) to bring corgis and their companions to campus for some much needed stress relief. Hundreds of students attended for a spot of tea and a selfie with a cardboard cutout of Her Majesty The Queen.


Procter House Renovations
(June 2016 - November 2017)

The initial round of remediation and renovation of Procter House is finally complete, with the house back in use for community events as of September 2017 and our new priest associate (The Rev’d Dr Kara Slade) moving in this December.

We have accomplished much. Updates, repairs, and improvements include: remediation of lead paint, asbestos, mold, and radon; new and more energy-efficient windows; new kitchen cabinets and countertops; updated bathrooms; and a fresh coat of paint throughout the interior.

And we have yet more to do. The exterior of the house is in sore need of restoration and we are developing plans for continual investment in and improvement of this vital property. Your gifts make this work possible; please continue to give generously.
