Ascension Day Evensong Service
Location: Duke Chapel

Choral Evensong is a centuries-old tradition that continues to be prayed every day all over the world. Drawn from the seventeenth century, worshipers are invited to enter into a sacred space of reflection through music, scripture, and prayers that have shaped Christian lives for hundreds of years. This service celebrates Jesus's ascension into heaven after having risen from the dead and spending forty days among his disciples. It includes a reading from the Gospel of Luke about the ascension as well as hymns and anthems on the theme.
