Chapel at St. Matthew's
The St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School community gathers for age-appropriate chapel services twice a week. Our chapel service is based on the service of Morning Prayer found in the Book of Common Prayer but is presented in a playful manner that touches the hearts and minds of young children. Clergy from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church and members of our faculty lead the services. The children are also active participants. Kindergarteners serve as acolytes and each class chooses a day to help act out the Bible story– complete with costumes and props! Parents are welcome and encouraged to join us for chapel.
It is our desire to raise up children who have “an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love God, and the feeling of joy and wonder in all His works.”
