Some of the best moments of the day take place in Chapel, where all of us gather four times a week to sing, to pray, to laugh, to perform. Chapel is more than a building (or buildings
). In many ways, “Chapel” refers to the spirit of St. Paul’s and the many ways we celebrate together – not just singing and praying, but also helping others
in our local community, improving our amazing natural environment, and committing to social justice.
While founded in the Episcopal tradition, St. Paul’s School celebrates all
faiths – any form of spirituality that inspires compassion for others. There are many ways you can take an active part in Chapel programs – not just as a performer
, but as a warden
maybe, greeting chapelgoers as they enter; as an acolyte
, assisting in religious services; or as a lector
, reading selections from poetry, essays, Christian scripture, or other religious and spiritual traditions. Learn to play a new instrument – our set of 23 Chapel bells – by becoming a carillonneur
. Every year we also select new Chapel prefects
, who serve as ambassadors to the larger School community.
