Worship lies at the heart of St. George’s Episcopal School. It forms the center of our spiritual and religious growth, and having the entire school gather for chapel at the start of each day shapes our very identity, mission, and ministry. All students, faculty, staff, and administration are required to participate. While the Episcopal Church’s central act of worship is the Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion, St. George’s School, with its ecumenical congregation, celebrates this sacrament only on special occasions and only for students in grades three through eight. Daily chapel services, while not necessarily derived directly from the Book of Common Prayer, use its traditional structure and prayers. Worship consists of prayers, songs, and a homily or chapel talk, and we strive to create worship that is both meaningful and interesting for students. Students are offered the opportunity to take leadership roles by serving as readers, prayer leaders, musicians, and acolytes.
