The SCU Fall Chapel Schedule has two components this academic year. The first is the regular chapel services which take place on Tuesday and Thursday throughout the semester. Each student is enrolled in chapel A or B and must attend their assigned chapel service.
The second part is the extra chapel services which take place on Friday. There are 8 Fridays in the fall that a special chapel service will take place. Friday chapels will begin at 11 am. These chapels can be used to attain the required spiritual life credits for the semester.
