  • Incredible place of worship. Truly awe inspiring. Inspired by European architecture, it’s a small cathedral type chapel that is open to anyone who would like to join in for a Sunday liturgy.
  • The architecture is truly beautiful. Walking into the chapel brings a sense of calm. Duke's campus makes you feel like you are in England - the stone, the crenenlation on the buildings, the flying buttresses of the chapel and the quads of the dorms. Definitely worth stopping in to see
