Celebrating 90 Years of Chaplaincy at Yale: Sacred Sites Tour

Learn all about student religious life at Yale ninety years after the founding of the Chaplaincy in 1927. Visit sites on and around Old Campus where many religious groups hold worship and meditation. Included will be Battell Chapel, Dwight Chapel, Breathing Space, the Hindu students’ prayer room, the Muslim students’ musalla, and ending with the Buddhist shrine in the chapel at the base of Harkness Tower.  Representatives of the Yale Chaplain’s Office will lead.  There will be plenty of walking, some stairs, and removal of shoes will be necessary to enter some of the spaces. Meet at Battell Chapel.
