CMU Vespers

You are warmly invited to attend CMU Vespers, a monthly worship service incorporating scripture, prayer, hymns, and choral music. Vespers is a unique opportunity for alumni and friends of CMU and its founding colleges to engage in praise of our living God, reflection on God’s calling and fellowship with other worshippers. 

Services are held at 7:00 PM on the third Sunday of each month from October to March in the Laudamus Auditorium, 500 Shaftesbury Blvd. Everyone welcome!
