All Saints' Chapel, located at the center of the campus, offers students a variety of programs for exploring religious faith and serving others. The Chapel also serves as our formal gathering space for Convocations, Commencement and other celebrations. Being centrally located is not coincidental, but an expression of Sewanee's identity as an Episcopal university.

Online Services

During these turbulent times, services in All Saints’ Chapel continue. Join the  University Chaplain and Dean of All Saints’ Chapel the Rev. Tom Macfie, C’80, T’89; Associate Chaplain the Rev. Dr. Melissa Hartley, C’93; and Assistant Organist Zachary Zwahlen as they  offer unique services from now through Easter (and beyond). 


Pronounced kat-i-kyoo-muh-net, this is the place where we explore what it means to be a human being and a person of faith within our community. Catechumenate comes from a Greek word meaning "to learn and explore." It's a small group that provides a place to slow down, a space to listen, and a time to speak what you believe. Meetings are held every Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Bairnwick Women's Center.

Growing in Grace

Growing in Grace is our informal, come-as-you-are evening worship service— commonly known as "GiG." We have a different speaker each week, student-led acoustic music, and a theme for each semester. Join us at All Saints' Chapel on Sunday nights at 6:30 p.m., and let's grow together.

University Choir

The University Choir is made up of more than 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.

Lessons & Carols

One of the highlights of the school year is the annual service of Lessons and Carols near the end of the Advent semester. Lessons and Carols regularly attracts as many as 3,000 people to campus each year, and it has even been featured in magazines. It is a festive occasion in which the community gathers together, sings together, and joins its voice with an age-old tradition.
