A time for faith and fellowship
St. Luke’s is a learning community in the graceful, inclusive tradition of Episcopal education. Our day begins with daily chapel, a few minutes when St. Luke’s students, faculty, and friends of all faith backgrounds gather together as a community. As we sit together in the pews, bathed in light from the stained glass windows, chapel offers us time for prayer, song, fellowship, and words of inspiration. We are reminded that first and foremost - before being teachers and scholars, artists and athletes - we are children of God.
Chapel at St. Luke’s is also an opportunity for older students to serve our community. Our Intermediate and Middle level students serve as acolytes and readers. Our eighth graders prepare and deliver “chapel talks,” a highlight of their final year and a moment of pride for their parents and teachers. Middle schoolers also serve as “chapel buddies” for our youngest students, ensuring their participation in the “big chapel” experience. This relationship is incredibly important to all the students, standing as a favored St. Luke's memory for years to come.
Our youngest students (PK3-K) experience daily chapel in the more intimate setting of the Children’s Chapel, where they are introduced to prayer, song and inspiration drawn from biblical stories in an age-appropriate service. They too have the opportunity to serve as acolytes and revel in the responsibility of leading worship.
