This year, Western Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter coincide with Spring Recess. We encourage students, faculty, and staff to explore some of the liturgical offerings in the greater Boston area.

For more information contact Protestant Chaplain Chanta Bhan ( or Catholic Chaplain Lynn Cooper (

We will still offer Mass on Easter Sunday morning at 11 am in Goddard Chapel, as well as several other on-campus opportunities as listed below:

Easter Sunday Mass
Sunday, March 27, 11 am, Goddard Chapel
Join us in celebrating the Resurrection of the Lord March 27th at Goddard Chapel. After our journey through the wilderness of the Lenten season and the stilled darkness of Good Friday and Tomb Day, we look forward to celebrating with one another on Easter morning, when the light of new life pours through the chapel. Immediately following Mass we will have a light brunch in the common room. All are welcome and as always, come as you are!
