  • The photographs of Aimee Tomasek, Assistant Professor of Art

Organists for the services are Dr. Lorraine Brugh and Dr. Joseph Bognar. 

A reception, sponsored by the Thrivent Community Board - Greater Valparaiso Group, will be held at the Community Room of the Christopher Center, adjacent to the Chapel, between the 7 and 10 p.m. services. All are welcome.

As always, Advent-Christmas Vespers admission is free, but the Chapel invites attendees to make a gift supporting the Chapel’s ministries, including student leadership development, spring break service trips, and new student outreach.
