Weekly Programs

University Public Worship (UPW)
What happens when a minister, a rabbi and a priest put their heads together? Well, not your average church service, that's for sure. Weekly Christian ecumenical services include sermons by the Deans for Religious Life and occasional guest preachers, and music featuring University Organist Dr. Robert Huw Morgan and the Memorial Church Choir, under the direction of Gregory Wait; Communion twice monthly; multi-faith service generally once monthly; baptisms once per quarter. All are welcome. Sundays, 10:00AM, Memorial Church.

Walk (don't run!) your way to a healthier outlook on life. If life has you wandering aimlessly in circles, embark on a personal journey that's stood the test of time for thousands of years. Enter the labyrinth and discover that walking in circles can actually put direction back in your life - that the rhythm and simplicity of following a clear path can quiet your mind, help you find balance, facilitate meditation, insight and celebration. Wander aimlessly no more. Come! Discover how truly liberated your mind and spirit can be! All are welcome. Fridays, 8:00am - 1:00pm, Memorial Church.

Docent-Led Tours of Memorial Church
Explore Memorial Church and its fascinating history, including stories of its endurance through two damaging earthquakes. Fridays, 2:00pm, as well as the last Sunday of the month, 11:15am; meet in front of Memorial Church.

Miss a Sunday service? KZSU 90.1 rebroadcasts the 10:00 am University Public Worship service on the Internet at, and rebroadcasts on 90.1 FM every Sunday at 11:30 am.
