Religion and Chapel

The Christ School community gathers regularly together to worship, and that shared fellowship is the glue that binds our community together. From its founding in 1900, St. Joseph's Chapel has played a central role in helping members of the school community make sense of the seemingly disconnected elements of our studies, society, and lives.

As an Episcopal school with students of many religious backgrounds, we lift up our Christian faith as an example to students of all faiths, with the belief that religion, properly understood, is an impetus to better understand ourselves, our religious heritage and our core values.

Above all else, the Chapel is a place of hospitality to all people of all faiths. The Chaplain plays an integral role in all aspects of the campus community and provides much of the leadership for our residential curriculum by attempting to bring to daily life the Christian concept of servant leadership.

Regular services at Christ School consist of an optional Sunday evening Eucharist, schoolwide Morning Prayer on Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday Eucharist.
