What is Sundays from Rockefeller?
A series of music and meditations offered by the musicians, artists in residence, dean, and Sunday gathering in the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel of the University of Chicago. Dean Maurice Charles offers weekly message and prayer through this Virtual Chapel. Recorded onsite in socially-distanced academic quarters, that we all might celebrate together again in a healthy future.
