Worship

Worship is an integral part of our courses at Bexley Seabury. Normally, we worship on campus in the Clark Chapel. When classes are in session, we gather for Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Holy Eucharist at times that will vary depending on the nature and schedule of the courses. The liturgies of the Book of Common Prayer, regularly supplemented by the texts of Enriching Our Worship 1, shape our worship. Our congregational song comes from The Hymnal 1982 and its several supplements. In addition to the Book of Common Prayer, we occasionally make use of liturgies from the wider Anglican Communion, as well as the commemorations found in Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2018. Our prayer offers intercession for the Bexley Seabury community and benefactors. It regularly includes prayers for alumnae and alumni, naming individuals using a cycle spread over the entire academic year.

Members of the Bexley Seabury community are welcomed to join our colleagues at Chicago Theological Seminary (CTS) for all-community worship on Wednesdays at noon in the 4th floor chapel during the fall and spring semesters. CTS is intentional about making Wednesday worship experiences as diverse as the community. These services are streamed online.

In addition, students are welcome to visit the Wells Clarke Meditation Room for private prayer and reflection.
