A message from Grace Davie

On behalf of the Anglican Chaplaincy at the University of Exeter it is my pleasure to invite fellow alumni and supporters to join us for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel. There will be a number of events taking place over the weekend, not least a chance to sing with the Chapel Choir. The Right Reverend James Jones, alumnus and former Bishop of Liverpool, will preside at the Eucharist.

Our aim is to bring together former chaplains, alumni and any others with a connection to the Chaplaincy for a joyful celebration of 60 years of Anglican worship and ministry at the University.

I do hope you can join us.

Grace Davie, Professor emeritus of Sociology at Exeter and Chair of the St. Luke's Foundation
