University Public Worship
Memorial Church has historically been an important center of spiritual and ceremonial life at Stanford University since the church was dedicated in 1903. It is open to anyone, wherever you may be on your spiritual journey. Please join us at University Public Worship, Sunday mornings at 10:00 am in this spectacular and sacred venue.
The Rev. Kemp Segerhammer will be preaching.
Paul Kempton Segerhammar grew up in Los Angeles in a Swedish/American Lutheran pastor’s family; the youngest of four children. After a short elementary school teaching career, he enrolled at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley earning the M.Div. degree and was ordained into the Lutheran Church in America (now the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) in 1972. Kemp served congregations in Denver, CO, Stockholm, Sweden, Glendale, CA, Seattle, WA and Palo Alto, CA. While in Palo Alto, he became active in the support of the Episcopal/Lutheran Ascension Eucharist at Stanford Memorial Church. He is presently on the rota of Nave Chaplains at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, a Convocator at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks and serves at Stanford Memorial Church as a Wedding Officiant. Married to Christine in 1967, they have two adult children, Brita of Palo Alto, and Jacob of Seattle, and are proud first-time grandparents.
