Prayers and Chapel



Founded by Old St. Paul’s Parish in Baltimore, St. Paul’s School for Boys has a rich history in the Episcopal tradition. Over the last 165 years St. Paul’s has embraced the ethos of the Anglican way that highlights the keys to our identity: Truth; Inclusiveness; Morality; Scripture; Virtues; Spirituality; Tradition; Diversity; Reason; Responsibility; and Worship. 

Our middle school gathers weekly on Thursday morning for a traditional service that includes biblical lessons, hymns, homilies from the chaplain, and chapel talks from faculty and staff, which are often based on character development.  

The upper school gathers on Wednesday mornings for a formal Chapel service that could include a homily or a chapel talk, as well as a senior speech or two. The division also gathers on Monday and Friday mornings in the space for an assembly that always opens and closes with a prayer. 


Teach us, Good Lord,  To serve Thee as Thou deservest,  To give and not to count the cost,  To fight and not to heed the wounds,  To toil and not to seek for rest to labor and not to ask for any reward, Save that of knowing that we do Thy will;  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

St. Ignatius of Loyola
