Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the St. Olaf College 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’s BIG READ, and a 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 AM
Tuesday – 11:10 AM
Thursday – 11 AM

During the month of January, the daily chapel service is at 10:10 AM (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 AM 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 PM. This is a relaxed, quiet and meaningful time with God’s word and God’s people.

  • Lenten Vespers

Lenten Vespers are held every Wednesday evening in Lent at 9 PM. Holy Communion is celebrated at each service.

Community Meals

  • “Breakfast Before Boe”

A simple breakfast at 10 AM in The Undercroft (lower level of Boe Memorial Chapel) held on the first and third Sunday of the month.

  • “Lunch After Boe”

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


  • Lunchtime Bible Study

“The Big Three”

  • Fall Speaker

Every Fall, we welcome a speaker to campus who invites us to consider current events from a faith perspective. We will announce our 2014 speaker shortly!

  • January’s BIG READ

During the month of January, St. Olaf College students, faculty, and staff are invited to read a common book. The College Ministry Team offers opportunities to discuss the book in large and small group settings. This common text is also explored in a number of January chapel services.

  • Spring Service Project

Every spring, we come together to serve.
