  • 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 

    Morris 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.


    Our stone baptismal font is suitable for baptism by pouring of water, not immersion.

    Reception facilities are available on campus through the Department of Conference Services at (209)946-7743.

    Sound services and a list of approved organists are available in the Morris Chapel office; you must schedule and make payment arrangements with these providers individually.


    Celebrate this special day against the beautiful backdrop of Morris Chapel.

    Due to the fact that quinceañeras last as long as our wedding ceremonies, the Morris Chapel rental fees for quinceañeras are the same as our wedding package fees.
