Good Friday Ecumenical Service

Friday, April 18, 12:10 pm, Goddard Chapel
As an Easter people, we must not forget that the brightness of morning only comes by way of the night. Like Christians all over the world, we will gather on Good Friday to sit with the darkness and listen to God’s word. As a community, we come together so that we might be truly present to one another and to ourselves, in all of our beauty and brokenness. Join us on Good Friday as begin in prayer, keeping vigil and staying awake to the tombs in our world and the tombs in our hearts. Let by Catholic Chaplain Lynn Cooper and Protestant Chaplain Rachael Pettengill-Rasure. Sponsored by the University Chaplaincy. For more information please contact

Good Friday Way of the Cross

Friday, April 18, Immediately Following the Ecumenical Service, Beginning at Goddard Chapel
Each year, we encounter Holy Week anew. The story of Jesus’ Passion remains the same but we change. We have lived a whole twelve months–with joys and hurts–hearing news of daily crucifixions and gracious births and merciful rebirths. We bring these stories with us through Holy Week with the hope that they help us to understand how it is that Jesus and the Gospel speak to us. Join us this year for Stations of the Cross. We will begin at Goddard Chapel and make our way through campus in prayer and song, stopping along to witness to the Passion. For more information please contact Catholic Chaplain Lynn Cooper at
