Chapel of grub
Rockefeller Chapel was at one time the shared soul of greatness and of troubled conscience. It has been made a dining room (and dance hall?) for money-grubbers bred in the solicitous bowels of our great University (“Chicago Journal,” June/04). I and, I suppose, countless others are offended beyond easy restitution. What can be done?

Alison Boden, dean of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, replies: On April 23 Rockefeller Chapel was the setting, as it long has been, of celebration, service, renewed commitment, and thanksgiving. It was a new kind of agape meal, if you will, one that honored those who have helped to maintain the strength of the University that we all enjoy. The form was new, but the spirit and intent were most familiar. It was a lovely and grace-filled evening.
