Religion & Chapel


St. Martin's Episcopal School is a Christian community whose mission integrates spiritual formation into all aspects of the educational experience. St. Martin's is true to its mission to educate the whole person in a loving, Christian atmosphere which fosters lifelong learning. This is accomplished in a graceful and dignified manner, which is a hallmark of the Episcopal approach to education. Our mission to form students spiritually is visible in the following ways:

Morning Devotion

All homeroom teachers begin the day with a morning devotion. These range from reading out of a daily devotional book to saying prayers together. Each devotion helps set a tone for the rest of the day.

Weekly Chapel Service 

Each Tuesday, the school gathers in the church for chapel. The chapel format is similar to a Morning Prayer service from the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer. We worship, read scripture, listen to a sermon and sing hymns. All members of the community are welcome regardless of spiritual or religious tradition.

Monthly Eucharist 

One Tuesday per month, the lower and middle schools gather for Holy Eucharist. At this service, we follow the Eucharistic rites of the Episcopal Church, and share communion together. All baptized Christians regardless of denomination may receive communion, and all persons may approach the altar to receive a blessing from the priest.

Religion Class 

Meaningful, academically substantive and age-appropriate religion courses are taught at every grade level. Topics include Bible Basics, Church History, Old Testament, New Testament, World Religions and Ethics.

SOLVE - Serving Others through Leadership, Volunteerism and Education

SOLVE is St. Martin's school-wide community service program. At St. Martin’s, we hold that what we do is a reflection of what we believe and how God moves within us. We plan divisional and grade-level projects that help students connect with what God is doing in their lives. Students learn important lessons which reveal who we are in relation to God and our neighbors. 

Warrior Wings

Warrior Wings is a parent-led program that helps school families at times of major illness, birth/adoption or death of immediate family members by providing and delivering meals.
