During the summer vacation months (May-August), students continue keep the daily offices in the Chapel as much as we are able. The main community gatherings for prayer and fellowship are on Feast Day celebrations. This summer, we keep the Feast Days in the Chapel with Evening Prayer at 5pm on the Eve of the Feast, and with Holy Communion at 5pm on the day of the Feast, with exceptions as listed below. All are welcome to come out for dinner (or breakfast) following the service. We keep the feast together.
