Holy Communion on Sundays
We meet at 5:30 p.m. on Sundays for Eucharist, a word which means "thanksgiving." We sing, we say prayers, we break bread, and we welcome all to join us at Christ's table.
Students are invited and encouraged to participate as musicians and readers.
Bread & Belonging on Wednesdays
At 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays during the fall and spring semesters, we meet to share a loaf of freshly baked bread and then go downstairs for Evening Prayer. Sometimes the service is from the Lutheran Book of Worship or the Book of Common Prayer, sometimes it's Taizé, and sometimes it's a special service for healing. About once a month we have Evening Prayer with a Professor, during which a member of the faculty talks about how his or her confession informs his or her profession.
Beginning the first week of classes, Christ Chapel will resume weekly mid-day prayers at noon on Thursdays. This 15 to 20-minute service offers a contemplative respite in the midst of a busy day.
** Noonday Prayer, formally known as "Sext," is one of the seven canonical hours or times during the day when Christians have traditionally sung or said prayers. The image on the left is from a 1410 manuscript of the book of hours or collection of prayers and readings to be used throughout the day.
