University of Aberdeen Founders' Day Chapel Service

University of Aberdeen Founders' Day Chapel Service

This is a past event

Join us as we pay tribute to our historic origins as an ancient University and celebrate the support of our benefactors over the centuries including Bishop Elphinstone.

The service will be conducted by University Chaplain, Rev Marylee Anderson, and a Homily will be provided by Rt Rev. Hugh Gilbert from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Aberdeen.

The Service will be followed by a light sandwich lunch reception in James McKay Hall, King’s College Conference Centre from 1:15pm-2:00pm, which will provide an opportunity to get together with fellow supporters and friends of the University. 

You will also be able to view our very special Reciprocation Book which recognises those who remembered the University in their Will. This treasured book can usually be found in the Special Collections Centre within the Sir Duncan Rice Library.
