Morning Prayers

Morning Prayers Service

A daily service of Morning Prayers has been kept at Harvard since its founding in 1636. Held Monday through Saturday during term in Appleton Chapel, the service consists of music, prayer, and a brief address given by a member or friend of the University. This service, open to all, is designed to enable students and faculty to attend nine o'clock classes.

Music at Morning Prayers is provided by the Choral Fellows of the Harvard University Choir, who sing a wide selection of anthems and psalms in a variety of styles. On Saturdays, the music is provided by soloists, small ensembles, or instrumentalists.

Following each service on Wednesday, free coffee and snacks will be available at MemCafé from 9:00 to 10:15 a.m. on The Porch, the steps of the Memorial Church across from Widener Library. All are welcome!
