Morning Prayers Suspended

The daily Morning Prayers service is suspended until further notice because of the health threat of the global pandemic. The safety of our community, which includes our staff, remains our first commitment.

A daily service of Morning Prayers has been kept at Harvard since its founding in 1636. Our clergy and staff are dedicated to continuing this daily outreach to the Harvard community and beyond. Beginning Sept. 2, the Memorial Church will publish a daily (Monday-Saturday) newsletter featuring music, student reflections, spiritual practices, and prayers. The electronic newsletter will also include the latest news from the church.

Sing up for our newsletter on the Memorial Church subscription page. And be sure to explore our archive of Morning Prayers audio and video below.
