Chapel Service

Our services include Wilson faculty, staff and students, and are ecumenically Christian in nature. Some services are traditional sermon services, with the chaplain, faculty or students preaching. Other services may include liturgical dance, communion, the choir, poetry, student led worship, gospel music or the music of Taize. Everybody is welcome. The atmosphere is casual, and the community is diverse.

Special Services

  • Throughout the academic year, special liturgical and college days are celebrated in a variety of ways.
  • Blessing of the Animals, typically held in early October, invites all of the animals on campus to join together on the Green for a service in which we thank God for the gifts and blessings that our animal friends offer us all year. Animals great and small attend this service!
  • Baccalaureate Service is held on the Saturday evening before graduation. This service is planned by the chaplain and includes members of the graduating class, as well as staff and faculty members. The service includes scripture readings, a brief message given by the chaplain, and a variety of musical selections At the end of the service the graduating class is given a blessing and a charge, sending them out into the world.
