Chapel at St. Paul’s School is where we begin our day as a community. It is a welcoming gathering place for prayer, reflection, music, and celebration. Informed and inspired by the inclusive Episcopal tradition, chapel life at SPS honors humanistic principles and all faiths. Through homilies, speeches, presentations, liturgical space, services, and silence, Chapel provides a platform for shared experiences that invite and challenge us to “learn those things on earth the knowledge of which continues in heaven” (St. Paul’s School motto).
