Update: Duke Chapel will begin holding limited, in-person Sunday morning worship services on May 23. Learn more.

During our online worship service on April 18, Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery announced that the university’s leadership has approved the Chapel holding in-person worship services, memorials, and weddings as early as the second half of May.

The services and ceremonies in the Chapel will adhere to public health safety protocols, including limits on the number of people attending, preregistration, masking, handwashing, social distancing, and no congregational singing.

In making the announcement, Dean Powery said, “In a season of challenge, it is such good news to know that we will once again begin to gather as a faith community.”

Check back here on the Chapel website in May for more information about in-person services and ceremonies.

Currently, Duke students, faculty, and staff who are on campus can attend outdoor services held by campus Religious Life groups and also sign up to spend time in the Chapel.
