Religion

Live a life that matters.

We believe in finding joy.

Deep Faith

You have a place in this world. Only God knows what that is for each of us. To find it, we seek God, individually and in community. Every day at EHS, our whole community gathers for Daily Chapel to pause, reflect, pray, seek God, and be strengthened. We contemplate what it means for each of us to lead meaningful lives. Then we take that inspiration forward into all that we do, letting it guide our actions, impact the way we see the world and treat each other, and show us how to live humbly as we love and serve our neighbor.

Our faith stands out in all that we do at EHS. Where will your WHERE WILL YOUR FAITH LEAD YOU?

Benitez Chapel

Named for our founding Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Maurice M. Benitez, the Benitez Chapel is home to our daily chapel. In worship, we look to God and find meaning, purpose and value in ourselves and others. We go to chapel every day. It is the one time each day when all of our Episcopal High School family is together. Students and faculty experience chapel as an oasis of reflection and calm in the midst of our busy campus life. In community, we find strength and encouragement. In chapel, we who are many become one before God. The Benitez Chapel is the beating heart of our community.

Religion Classrooms

The Religion Department holds its classes–Old Testament, New Testament, World Religions, The History of Christianity, and Ethics–mostly on the first floor of the Brown Learning and Resource Center.

Canterbury Circle has helped me to further strengthen my connection with God. In our Thursday morning meetings, we dive deep into the underlying meanings of various Biblical stories and discuss God's presence within our daily lives.

To me, the Choices program has been an outlet and something that has been there for me when I felt I needed it the most. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of mental health and all the things I can do to help myself and others around me who struggle with mental health. Having Choices at EHS is a symbol for healing and safe haven for students and is meant to be a resource students feel comfortable using.

The aspect of going to Daily Chapel can genuinely turn around a seemingly bad day around just by being enriched in the culture and loving environment the church provides. Chapel just always seems to lift my spirt a little higher and make all of us smile a little brighter. You could almost just say Daily Chapel has become the cup of coffee I need in the morning!
