Spiritual Life Events

Memorial Chapel

Faith undergirds all that we do in the HRC, and our prayer services are the hallmark of the HRC's Christian commitment. A unique aspect of life in the HRC is our devotion to prayer and to service. The Memorial Chapel, which was restored and dedicated thanks to the contributions of Ted & Sue Getterman and Bill & Mary Jo Robbins, is the site of daily prayer, mornings (Monday-Friday) and evenings (Monday-Thursday). Beginning Fall 2013, the HRC began offering chapel credit for any students living in our community who would like to attend HRC Prayer Services instead of Baylor Chapel. The prayer services offer students a chance to pause amidst the busyness and spend time devoting themselves to God. 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.

Hall Prayer

Every Sunday evening, students in each hall come together to pray in community.  Hall prayer is a great way to develop friendships and worship.

Lessons and Carols

Each December, students form a small orchestra and choir, and perform the traditional “The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” celebrated in the intimate Memorial chapel.
