A useful definition of prayer is that it is “a good talk with an old friend.” All students are called to prayer, to meet their God in the silence of their hearts, and to grow strong in this relationship. Teachers make frequent use of the Chapel for group prayer, sacred silence, meditation, and at times, simply relaxation. The study of World Religions brings an understanding and appreciation of a wide range of practices from a variety of sacred traditions. Students are encouraged to broaden and deepen their sense of the sacred. Practice in prayer and meditation inspires peace, confidence, and spiritual connection.
