Photo gallery: Look inside Ayer Memorial Chapel Ayer Memorial Chapel is a literal and figurative centerpiece of the Peddie campus and student life. The community gathers twice a week here to share music or literature and listen to talks by students, faculty, staff and guest speakers. Students celebrate the start of a new school year at Convocation, held in chapel. Vespers is a long-standing popular tradition at Peddie, during which the community comes together to celebrate the upcoming holidays with song, candlelight and reflection. It gets REALLY loud during Blue and Gold Chapel, Peddie-Blair week's culmination, and the kickoff to Peddie-Blair Day. It's likely to be one of your most memorable weeks at Peddie.
