As an Episcopal School, our community life at Trinity-Pawling is grounded in Christian charity and guided by the particularly Anglican interplay of faith and reason. Our faith is one driven by practicing the virtue of love, and our reason is one driven by valuing the exercise of the mind. In both these endeavors, we embrace the mystery of God revealed in the Incarnation and see each person as a child of God. Divine mystery manifest in Jesus Christ inspires each of us to grow in our faith, and Trinity-Pawling strives to create that possibility by inculcating in each student the knowledge that he has a soul and is, first and foremost, a spiritual being whom God calls to redemption. The spiritual life at Trinity-Pawling finds its center in All Saints Chapel, where the school gathers to start the day.
We are thankful for the opportunity to gather each day so that we might thank God for all he has done. On Monday, Thursday, and Friday, the entire school meets to start the day by singing a hymn, reading from Scripture, hearing a Chapel Talk, saying a prayer, and making announcements. On Tuesday, all meet together, sometimes in the morning and sometimes in the evening, to read or sing one of the services from the Book of Common Prayer. Voluntarily, individuals may choose to make their communion on Sunday evenings throughout the year and on Holy Days during the week. By coming together in All Saints Chapel we honor and praise God by saying to each other, “Whoever you are and wherever you are in your journey of faith you are welcome here.”
As a complement to the Episcopal services offered in the chapel, Trinity-Pawling encourages students to participate in a variety of religious services off campus. We provide regular rides on Sunday mornings to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in the village for the celebration of the Eucharist, to Roman Catholic Mass at
It is our hope that Trinity-Pawling’s chapel life provides a religious discipline and context for students, faculty, and staff on which to build their inner life and in which it may grow, sending them into the world, loving God with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength and their neighbor as themselves.
