Interfaith Baccalaureate Service
5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Old Church
Wesley St. at Fletcher St.
Oxford, GA

The baccalaureate service is an Oxford tradition. Coordinated by Oxford’s chaplain, this interfaith celebration of song and prayer represents the many faith traditions of our student body. All graduating students and their families and guests are invited to join this service that lasts approximately one hour.

Old Church is a three-minute walk from campus, going north on Wesley Street. Go two blocks past Haygood Hall, and Old Church will be on your left. By car, go north on Emory Street (Highway 81), turn left on Fletcher Street. Follow Fletcher Street until it intersects with Wesley Street. Old Church will be directly in front of you; police officers will direct you to parking.
