Weekly Chapel Service
Casady School is an academic institution that has been rooted in the Christian faith tradition since its founding in 1947. Our faith is primarily expressed through the sacraments, liturgy, and traditions of our Episcopal identity. While our foundation is solidly Christian, we welcome students of many different faith traditions.
Each Friday, St. Edward's Chapel fills with Primary Division students and faculty for a time of spiritual refreshment, prayer, and worship. Weekly Chapel consists of an abbreviated, yet spirit-filled, prayer service from the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer. During the service, students participate in a variety of ways: singing hymns, praying, interacting with daily scripture readings, and listening to a "Chapel talk.”
The “Chapel talk” is presented by the chaplains and a Primary Division teacher trained in the Godly Play curriculum creates a special opportunity for our students to learn values of faith, hope, and love. Music, creativity, and media often provide the platform through which these values are expressed. The ultimate hope for our students' Chapel experience is that they will not only realize their value as children of God, but also take the values learned within the confines of this Holy place and share them with the world.
