Students describe it as a chance to catch their breath — an opportunity to gather their thoughts, share time with friends and prepare to start their day. Hear more from them.
Chapel at St. Paul’s School is where we begin our day as a community, students and teachers alike. It is central to the SPS experience and the connections we build with one another.
In Chapel, you will find a welcoming place where we gather for music and celebration, speakers and performances, reflection and prayer. It is a space of belonging and connection, inspired and guided by our inclusive Episcopal tradition, where each student and teacher is assigned their own seat and where every faith and form of spirituality is acknowledged and invited in.
What is Chapel?
The Chapel Choir
The story of choral music at SPS is as old as the school itself! For more than 160 years students have raised their voices in song here, and we continue the very best of that tradition now in the 21st century. We offer singing opportunities for any level of musical ability, from complete novice to lifelong children’s choir member! We welcome any student to audition for Chapel Choir.
The School Prayer
“Grant, O Lord, that in all the joys of life we may never forget to be kind. Help us to be unselfish in friendship, thoughtful of those less happy than ourselves, and eager to bear the burdens of others; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.”
