Events at Morris Chapel


Morris Chapel is used for a host of events throughout the year by the Pacific community, and the larger Stockton community.  We have times available for your group or event.

The chapel will seat a maximum of 300 people.  For guidelines about the use of candles, decorating the chapel, and available services, please contact the chapel office.

  • Baccalaureate Service 

    A baccalaureate service is a celebratory occasion that honors a graduating senior class at educational institutions, usually held before commencement. It often highlights the religious and philosophical traditions of the university's student body and contains a farewell sermon. It also contains musical performances and student addresses. University of the Pacific is proud to continue this longstanding tradition, honoring its multifaceted, multifaith, and diverse community.

  • Baptisms, Quinceañeras, and Other Events 

    The Chapel is available for these services and events throughout the year. The beauty of the chapel and the surrounding lawns and rose garden makes a wonderful background for these special commemorations.
