Wait Chapel invites you to join us in a virtual Easter service on April 4, 2021, at 8 a.m. The service will feature music from several artists and provide a time of reflection and celebration. In addition to this webpage, the service will also stream on the School of Divinity’s Facebook page and YouTube. Dean Jonathan Lee Walton will serve as the morning proclaimer. In preparation for the Sacrament, we invite you to gather your own elements at home.
