The Office of the Chaplains & Religious Life sponsors and co-sponsors a variety of events each semester of religious and spiritual interest.
Modeled on the Kings College Christmas Eve Service of Lessons and Carols, the Candlelight Services feature the Rooke Chapel Choir and the Rooke Chapel Ringers, under the direction of Dr. William Payn.
The Rooke Chapel Choir of Bucknell University, under the direction of William A. Payn, Director of Choral Studies, has gained international recognition for its creative interpretations of some of the most significant twentieth-century American sacred repertory.
The Ringers choir consists of 14 members who are selected by audition and who represent diverse major fields of study at Bucknell University, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business administration, education, and engineering.
Each year, on Commencement Weekend, the OCRL Office honors our graduates with a Multifaith celebration.
