Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the St. Olaf Student Congregation. Worship at Boe Memorial Chapel, enjoy a community meal, engage in a learning opportunity, or participate in “The Big Three” events – our fall speaker; January retreat; and spring service project.


  • Daily Chapel

Chapel at St. Olaf College is a time of inspiration for body, mind and spirit; a quiet harbor in a busy day; worship. Students, faculty, and staff witness to their faith and invite the community to join them. All are welcome!

Monday, Wednesday, Friday – 10:10 a.m.
Tuesday – 11:10 a.m.
Thursday – 11 a.m.

During the month of January, the daily chapel service is at 10:10 a.m. (Monday – Friday)

  • Sunday Worship with Holy Communion

The St. Olaf College community and guests gather for Worship with Holy Communion each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in Boe Chapel (except during school breaks). All are welcome to worship and share in the Lord’s Supper

  • Midweek Service of Prayer

A midweek service of prayer and meditation the first and third Wednesday evenings of the month at 9 p.m. This is a relaxed, quiet and meaningful time with God’s word and God’s people.

  • Lenten Vespers

Lenten Vespers are held each Wednesday evening in Lent. Holy Communion is celebrated at each service.

Community Meals

  • “Breakfast Before Boe”

A simple breakfast at 10 a.m. in the Norway Room (Buntrock Commons) the first and third Sunday of the month.

  • “Lunch After Boe”

Grab your cafeteria trays for lunch after worship every second and fourth Sunday of the month


  • Lunchtime Bible Study

Read and discuss a biblical text every Monday from 12 to 12:45 p.m.

  • Book Discussion Group

A weekly book group. No tests or papers, just thoughtful interaction. Every Wednesday at 8 p.m.

“The Big Three”

  • Fall Speaker

In October, we welcomed Donna Freitas to campus. Freitas, author of “Sex and Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance, and Religion on America’s College Campuses,” inspired great conversations.

  • Winter Retreat

For one weekend every Winter, we gather on a farm, away from campus, as a community. This is a time of learning, worship and fellowship. Details for this event are available in our office.

  • Spring Service Project

Every spring, we come together to serve.
