Spiritual Life

Think, Believe, Act

Inclusivity and freedom of thought define Trinity School in the Episcopal tradition. Think - You are loved. Believe - Your heart, your family, traditions. Act - With integrity and compassion. Help people and the world.

Early Childhood Program Chapel

A Chaplain from Trinity Church gathers the children weekly for a song and then a story and then guides a conversation based on it, encouraging children's wondering and reflections. Children offer their prayers or thoughts in this interactive time. Parents are always welcome to attend and sit behind the classes.

Elementary School Chapel

All students gather in the Chapel with their class to start the school day. In community Chapel, your child hears stories that connect to the themes taken from Galatians 5:22-23, the fruits of the Holy Spirit, including love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and gentleness. They also learn about and celebrate the values and traditions of faiths represented by families in the School. Students contribute to conversations about these stories to gain a vocabulary and a space for embracing their spiritual selves. Songs, prayers, birthday celebrations, skits, and student announcements lift a student’s voice within the caring community of children and adults. Friday skits feature Grades 3 - 5 as they enact a dramatic rendition of one of the week’s Chapel themes. Parents and family are always welcome to sit behind the classes at every Chapel and especially to come for a student’s birthday celebration.
