William Carey has its first chapel service since the tornado

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - William Carey had its first chapel service Wednesday morning since the devastating tornado that hit Hattiesburg and its campus back on January 21.

The service was held outside next to the cafeteria where hundreds of students and faculty members congregated for this special chapel service.

William Carey President, Dr. Tommy King said, "We felt that we needed to do everything possible to return to normalcy, to regular schedule. And, Wednesday is our regular day for chapel. So, we have scheduled this chapel before they go home for spring break. The overall message is that the past is the past and we now have the future to look to. And, storms are going to come, but we have a source of strength that we can turn to."

King said the university will have one more chapel service before the school year ends.

Bass Chapel should be finished by this fall.
