A liberal arts university shaped by the Episcopal Church, Sewanee supports students as they integrate spiritual and intellectual growth, build inclusive communities, practice their faith, and lead lives of purpose.



All Saints' Chapel

All Saints' Chapel, located at the center of the campus, is the hub for religious and spiritual life on campus.  The Chapel also serves as our formal gathering space for Convocations, Commencement and other celebrations. Grounded in the Episcopal tradition, All Saints' Chapel serves God and neighbor by being an outward and visible sign of God's beloved community, where belonging and equity intersect.

Religious Diversity

From gospel choirs and small-town churches to the School of Theology and the stunning All Saints' Chapel on central campus, there is no shortage of ways to grow your faith here. In addition to Episcopal worship, Sewanee is home to Cru, University Catholic, a Muslim Student Association, Sewanee Sangha, and others.  Chaplains work to support the spiritual inquiry and practice of all students, not just those who identify as Episcopalian.

University Choir

At the laying of the University cornerstone in 1860, a choir is said to have sung Psalm 100. Since that time, the University Choir has continued to play an important role in the musical life of Sewanee. The University Choir is made up of around 50 dedicated undergraduates who sing at weekly services in All Saints' Chapel and a variety of recitals throughout the program year. Choir membership is open to everyone, regardless of previous experience.
