Christ Chapel Reservations


Christ Chapel is an active place. During the school year, Daily Sabbath, Sunday worship, ensemble rehearsals, lectures, conferences, and special events fill the Chapel calendar. These are punctuated by weddings, baptisms, memorial services, and contracted special events such as synod assemblies and community concerts, all of which also continue during the summer. If you are interested in reserving the Chapel for an event, please review the policies and procedures on this page.
