Chapel & Religious Life

Beloved Community: Belong | Become | Behold

Spring 2021

Hayworth Chapel and the Religious Life Office is here to support our community, especially in these challenging times. See menu to the left and highlights below.

In Memoriam

Many of us have lost loved ones to (or during) the Covid-19 pandemic, and because of isolation and social distancing, we have not been able to properly grieve. Hayworth Chapel has always been a steady shoulder in times of grief. We can maintain that spirit and work now. To that end, we’ve created an online memorial for you to write stories and memories of your loved ones that we might share and walk alongside one another.


Hayworth Chapel and the Religious Life Office (aka “The Chapel”) of High Point University seeks to grow the heart and soul of High Point University. Our ambition is that all members of the HPU community experience they are BELOVED. All may:

  • experience they BELONG.
  • BECOME who they are called to be.
  • BEHOLD the presence of God’s grace.

The Chapel, fostered by its Christian tradition, exists to deepen High Point University’s Christian character and practice, which also means being a place of radical hospitality to people of all traditions. In this way, HPU is Christian by tradition (and committed to that tradition) and interfaith in outlook, modeling inter-religious understanding and cooperation.
