    Office of the University Chaplain

    The Office of the University Chaplain, located in Lawless Chapel, provides University-wide coordination for religious life at Dillard. When the University is in session, worship is offered on the Sunday evenings at 6pm. in the Chapel. Campus organizations are encouraged to support the service by beginning their special weeks in the Chapel by “sponsoring” the service and participating and leading the worship service with announcements of their events for that week. The VisionQuest Chorale [hyperlink for Chorale & Dancers] is the primary source of musical support for the Chapel. The VisionQuest Dancers dance at a frequency of about twice per month.
