Progressive, Inclusive, Welcoming

The Christian Association at the University of Pennsylvania (CA) is a community of hospitality, service and advocacy, and faith exploration. We strive to live out the Gospel message -- to bring God’s love to Penn students (both undergraduate and graduate students), faculty, staff and neighbors. We welcome every person into our doors regardless of religious affiliation, orientation, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race or gender.
