Kairos Contemplative Christian Service

Tuesday evenings, 8-8:30 p.m., Cannon Memorial Chapel

Kairos is a weekly service that offers students sacred time to reflect on life's deepest questions. Led by members of the Chaplaincy staff and students who serve on the Kairos Leadership Team, the 30-minute service includes scripture, hymns, contemporary music, prayer and candle lighting. Each service focuses on a theme and question that help students to consider their lives and their relationship to the world around them in light of their faith.
