Remembering our Centenary Family 

We invite alumni to create space during Homecoming activities to remember and honor classmates, former faculty, and friends who have passed away during the last year. Votive candles will be available to light in remembrance of those we have lost.  We encourage this time to be a place of reflection, silence, and/or the spiritual practice of prayer.  The chapel will be open Friday, October 20, from 8a-8p; Saturday, October 21, from 9a-6p; and Sunday, October 22, from 12p-4p.
