Seeking: Sexton Program Coordinator

June 1, 2014

The University Lutheran Chapel is looking for someone to fill the paid, part-time position of Sexton Coordinator (to start as soon as possible). The Sexton Coordinator is tasked with overseeing our Sexton Program.

What is a sexton, and what needs coordinating you may ask? Historically, a sexton is someone charged with the maintenance and caretaking of the church’s buildings and grounds. At the University Lutheran Chapel, our sexton program provides affordable housing for up to nine ULCA students, in exchange for which they donate eight hours of their time each week to Chapel-related work. The sextons are an intricate part of our Chapel’s day-to-day existence, and it is therefore important to have someone well-qualified overseeing them. A more detailed description of this job is available here.

Since the sextons have such an enormous impact on the Chapel and the congregation, with responsibilities spanning across buildings & grounds maintenance, administrative tasks, and programming, it is important that the Sexton Coordinator be (or be willing to be) intimately connected to and involved with the University Lutheran Chapel. If you or anyone you know is interested in this position, please send a copy of your cover letter and resume to with the subject “SEXTON COORDINATOR”.

Thank you! – ULC


Sexton Program Full

May 28, 2014

We would like to announce that we have settled on our 2014-2015 roster of sextons for the sexton program and are no longer accepting applications. As always, we had many, many, many more applicants than we could accept for the limited number of openings. Thank you to all of those who applied and interviewed.

If you are still interested in living here for the 2014-2015 year (or summer 2015, or later), you may add yourself to the callback list (available on the sexton program page) so that you’ll be contacted should a space open up. (Note that this for a callback list, not a waitlist, meaning newly added people have just as good of a chance at getting in as those who were on the list earlier.) Thank you!

Seder (Passover)

May 8, 2014

We have a lovely Seder (passover) ceremonial dinner here at ULC, on Maundy Thursday (April 17th), with home-cooked foods that were all kinds of delicious, and a beautiful set-up. Please head over to our facebook to see and comment on the rest of the photos.



Brunch (Apr. 13)

May 5, 2014

We had an excellent brunch on April 13th, cooked up by the resident sextons. There are a lot more great photos on our facebook page, so check us out and “Like” us there so you stay in the ULC loop about other fun, upcoming events.


Egg-Dying Day

May 2, 2014

Things sure have been busy here at the chapel the past few weeks! The sextons proposed an egg-dying activity for the day before Easter, and we also made smores with Easter-themed marshmallows.


Relay for Life

April 30, 2014

In addition to marking Pastor Rossow’s last Sunday at ULC (we wish him well in his new call!), the April 26-27th weekend was when we participated in our local RELAY FOR LIFE fundraiser. We went with a “Game of Thrones” theme. Thanks go to our member who helped prepare for it and took shifts, all through the night, to make it happen. Check out our facebook page for more photos!


Best Wishes to Pastor Rossow!

April 28, 2014

Yesterday was a big day for us at ULC…while we said goodbye to Pastor Rossow, who has been serving us for the past several months and will be beginning a new call to St. Johns, we also welcomed two new members to the church! Congratulations to Noah and Martin on your confirmation, and to Pastor Rossow on another exciting chapter! What a great day!!!
