If you wanted to attend the Beyoncé Mass at Spelman College on Monday, you may need more than a prayer.

Demand for the service was so high, that tickets were reserved quickly, according to a Spelman College spokeswoman.

There are plenty of people, though, who still hope they can get inside Sisters Chapel on the HBCU’s campus. And perhaps they can.

An email to ticketholders were recently sent through Eventbrite asking them to release their tickets if they cannot attend the service, which will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at Sisters Chapel.

“There is a substantial waitlist, and we would like to accommodate as many people as possible,” the message read.

It asks that mass goers arrive by 6:55 p.m. or else they may not be guaranteed a seat.

The liturgy of Beyoncé Mass includes music from the artist’s vast discography, readings from womanist scholars and prominent black female leaders, and a sermon from the Rev. Yolanda M. Norton, the H. Eugene Farlough Chair of Black Church Studies and assistant professor of Hebrew Bible at San Francisco Theological Seminary.

Norton curated and created the service.

In California, Norton taught a class, “Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible,” which focused on how black women encountered Scripture and how they see themselves in sacred texts.
