All Saints’ Chapel
is an outward and visible sign
of God’s beloved community,
where belonging and equity intersect. 

Worship

The Chapel hosts worship throughout the week, most of which comes from the Episcopal tradition, an open, generous, and thoughtful expression of the Christian faith.  Because not everyone at Sewanee identifies as an Episcopalian or even as a Christian, when you arrive for worship, expect to be greeted and guided through the service.

Catechumenate

Pronounced kat-i-kyoo-muh-net, is a brave, safe space made up of small group conversations and short presentations on different parts of the Christian tradition.  If you are looking for a small group setting that offers a place to question, share, go deeper in your faith, or simply be present, we encourage you to join us. Meetings are held every Wednesday at 7 p.m. in All Saints’ Chapel.

Growing in Grace

Growing in Grace is an informal worship service that is designed for students and community members, featuring student-led acoustic music, a different speaker each week, and Holy Communion.  Join us at All Saints' Chapel on Sunday nights at 6:30 p.m., where our speakers will reflect on our semester-long theme:  "Fruit of Our Labor.” 

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.

Interfaith Support

Whether you identify with a particular religious or spiritual tradition, engage with multiple traditions, or are currently exploring what brings meaning, purpose, and belonging to your life, the Chapel is a resource to you.  In addition to supporting student groups organized around religious, spiritual, or secular identities, we convene the Interfaith Advisory Council: a group of students, staff, and faculty striving to make Sewanee more inclusive.

Chaplains in Residence

Chaplains accompany people in times of struggle and times of joy.  Chaplains in Residence offer that opportunity for connection in residence halls across campus.  Whether you're grieving, celebrating, or asking big questions of meaning and purpose, Chaplains in Residence create the space for meaningful connection.

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.
