One of the most important aspects of training for Christian life is consistent, inspiring, and varied participation in corporate worship.  Services of preaching, Eucharist, and prayer are at the center of our community life as we gather for weekly worship eleven times each week during the academic year.

About Our Worship Services

Morning and Evening Prayer offer space at the beginning and end of the day to center hearts and imaginations on God through Scripture and prayer. We are united with Christians around the world in these daily offices using the rites from the Book of Common Prayer.

Services of the Word and Services of Word and Table provide space for members of the Divinity School community to come together in the middle of the day to center themselves in worship. Students, staff, and faculty members often share responsibility for leading services, which mirror the variety of liturgical and denominational traditions represented at the school. Word and Table services, generally offered once each week, include the Eucharist. 

Services of Gathering and Prayer feature Scripture, song, silence, and prayer. These informal services include a time for prayers of healing and anointing with oil. 

All are welcome to join us for worship.

Music and Dance Ensembles

Three different sacred music ensembles—the Divinity Choir, the Gospel Choir, and the Chapel Band—provide ministry through music. The Sacred Dance ensemble offers inspiration through liturgical dance. Participation in these ensembles is open to singers, musicians, and dancers of all abilities without audition. Students share leadership for the Chapel Band, Gospel Choir, and Sacred Dance. Brian Schmidt conducts the Divinity Choir, and Christopher Jacobson serves as organist for the congregation. For more information, contact the chaplain's office.
