The Chapel

Founded in the Episcopalian tradition, Salisbury School values the Chapel as a central part of the Salisbury experience. It is there that the school is brought together to pause, to reflect beyond our daily routine and to consider what it means to be a child of God. Honoring the variety of faith traditions represented in this community as well as the diverse paths of spirituality, the Chapel does not expect students to confess in one particular tradition but rather invites them to consider what lies beyond, as it is described in readings, reflected on in Chapel talks, celebrated through music and reached for in prayer. 

Services

As part of our mission to nurture the spiritual lives of the school community, everyone gathers for chapel on Tuesday and Friday mornings. A typical service may include music, readings, student musicians, a brief talk and prayer. While we host outside speakers, the most memorable Chapel talks come from within the school community from a member of the faculty, staff or from a fellow student. The opportunity to participate in a community Eucharist is offered to the entire Salisbury community on a regular basis in connection with weekly Chapel services. 


“This is what we do here in Chapel – it is not just a way to get together like school meetings or assemblies. It is a unique and holy way to be a community in the presence of the One who makes us one, so that our lives might be shaped to honor that gift with gratitude and joy as we continue on our journey beyond these walls as individuals and as a school community.”

“It is here [in Chapel] that we turn to gather as a community, with humility and respect, to stare into the mystery that is bigger than us all, to glean some understanding of our role in the world and to try to come to terms with who we are and whose we are – and, in that, to find hope.”   

- Rev. Kirk Hall
