About Chapel at St. Paul's
As an Episcopal school, St. Paul's views Chapel as the School's
communal life and an integral part of the educational experience at the
School. Each division attends Chapel once or twice a week. The goal of
the Chapel program is to have every student's faith become stronger in
the course of being a part of the St. Paul's School community. The
chapel and chaplains are available for any pastoral needs that arise.
This includes marriages, baptisms, funerals, hospital visits, and
dealing with personal issues one faces from a spiritual perspective.
What does it mean to be an Episcopal school?
schools are challenged to integrate the physical, social, academic, and
spiritual development of the whole child. At St. Paul's, we value our
Episcopal tradition and express it in these various ways:
- We are committed to provide opportunities for worship and development of the spiritual life of each person
believe that love, compassion, unselfishness, and the force of inner
truthfulness ultimately have greater power than hate, enmity, and
- We are committed that each member of the School
community grow in service to others, providing meaningful opportunities
and experiences for all
- We are committed to engaging freely in ethical and religious discussion, when appropriate, in all academic disciplines
*We expect our students to respect others, to be responsible, and to treasure integrity.
