In September 2005, CCES opened the doors to the newly constructed Chapel of the Good Shepherd. Located in the heart of the Cavalier Campus, the inspiring chapel rises above the roofs of the Lower, Middle and Upper School buildings surrounding it, a symbol of the centrality of faith and prayer in a Christ Church Episcopal School education.
CCES is a chapel community spiritually rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We gather weekly in community prayer and worship, honoring our Episcopal tradition while respecting the dignity of each person and the religious traditions of others. We embrace our Christian identity and welcome students of other faiths as we believe that our community is enriched by religious diversity.
Students participate by planning services, reading Bible lessons, writing and leading prayers, and lending their musical talents to worship. Key events in the school calendar – award ceremonies, special recognitions, the commissioning of student leaders – all are celebrated within chapel services, placing student achievement and responsibility within a context of giving Glory to God and service to others.
