The Memorial Chapel is the site of daily prayer, weekday mornings and evenings. Incorporating many modes and styles of worship, including Scripture reading, brief teachings, both traditional and contemporary music worship, and prayer, services provide attendees with a chance to pause amidst the busyness of life and to spend time with God. While morning and evening prayer are open to the entire community, the HRC offers chapel credit to any of its students who would like to attend HRC Prayer Services instead of Baylor Chapel. For those interested in enrolling in HRC alternative chapel, please contact Courtney_DePalma@baylor.edu.
Once a month, HRC students gather in Memorial Chapel for Sunday Night of Worship (affectionately known as SNOW). Student musicians lead the group in both contemporary and traditional worship songs.
Every Sunday evening, hall prayer is hosted by a student from each hall. As a closing to the Sabbath, students come together to pray in community. This is a unique opportunity to connect with the Lord and each other.
Co-sponsored by Baylor's Institute for Faith and Learning, this event brings together an interdisciplinary group of professors from across the university to discuss the impact of their faith on their calling. An alternative texture to traditional lectures, this informal conversation series draws on the wisdom of the panel to illuminate ways that God has worked in their lives.
Each December, students form a small orchestra and choir to perform A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. Reflecting the tradition started by the choir at King's College Cambridge in 1918, Lessons and Carols helps the HRC community celebrate our Savior's coming and birth.
