While the majority of the events taking place at the Old Latin School will be designed by the groups using the facility, the OLS will also occasionally offer programs. For example, the “Reformation World Exhibit” in 2017 will especially provide opportunities for visitors to the Old Latin School. As these programs and events become available, they will be posted on the website and Facebook page.
We would especially like to recommend attending the Divine Service in the chapel of the Old Latin School, which is regularly held on the first and third Saturdays of the month at 4:00 p.m. Pastors of the Independent Evangelical Lutheran Church (SELK) lead the services following the Lutheran liturgy, and Holy Communion is celebrated.
