This is a past event
This term sees the 500th anniversary of the consecration of the University of Aberdeen's King's College Chapel. This special historic event is being celebrated with a programme of events featuring services, music recitals and a lecture series.
On Sunday 4 October we are hosting a full day of activities including a talk about King's College Chapel archives, a virtual tour and a walking tour of Old Aberdeen.
The consecration anniversary day starts with a celebration service, with the Very Reverend Professor Iain R Torrance preaching and the premiere of a specially commissioned piece of music written by Dr Paul Mealor and performed by the Chapel Choir. In the evening there will be a consecration anniversary Roman Catholic Mass at 6.30pm where Con-celebrants will include:-
His Eminence Keith Patrick Cardinal O'Brien
His Excellency Archbishop Faustino Sainz Munoz, Apostolic Nuncio
Right Reverend Peter A Moran, Bishop of Aberdeen
Father Allan White O.P to preach
