On May 22, Duke University Chapel holds its first Sunday worship services inside the Chapel building since reopening last week after a yearlong restoration project.
People are invited to gather on the Chapel Quad at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday for carillon music and a procession into the University Worship Service, which begins at 11 a.m. The service will feature a sermon from Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery, a multilingual call to worship and a litany of thanksgiving. The Chapel Choir will lead the music for the service, along with guest choirs from Millbrook High School in Raleigh and Garner Magnet High School.
After the service, lunch will be provided on Abele Quad. Nonprofit groups with whom the Chapel partners in mission will be on hand to describe their work in the community.
At 4 p.m., the Chapel will hold a Choral Evensong Worship Service in the tradition of Anglican evening prayer. Dean Powery will preside at the service and the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, bishop pro tem of the Diocese of North Carolina, will be reading from the Scriptures.
Summer road construction on campus affects some routes to the Chapel. In particular, a section of Science Drive at Bassett Dr. will be closed for the summer. People planning to park in the Bryan Center Parking Garage should enter campus on Towerview Rd. (off of Duke University Rd.) or Morreene Rd. (off of Erwin Rd.).
The Chapel holds its University Worship Service at 11 a.m. on Sundays throughout the year. During the academic year, it also has Evensong, Midweek Prayer and Vespers services, along with special services as announced.
