Marquand Chapel

Worship in Marquand ChapelEcumenical Worship in Marquand Chapel is a time set apart every morning when the community gathers to pray and give praise to God. It is planned and led by the students, faculty, administrators and staff of Yale Divinity School and Institute of Sacred Music and is ecumenical in its mission. A different person or group of people leads each day. The Dean of Chapel and Chapel Ministers work with everyone who leads worship in order to balance the chapel’s twofold mission as a place where liturgy is learned and as a spiritually nourishing point on campus.

One of the main ways we achieve this balance is by inviting worship leaders to draw deeply on their own denominations’ liturgical traditions while, at the same time, orienting these to make them accessible to as many people in this community as possible.

Worship begins at 10.30 AM; from Monday through Thursday, the service is thirty minutes long; on Fridays it is forty-five minutes. All are welcome.
