Episcopal Church at Lawrenceville gathers for weekly worship. The School Chaplain leads the service of Holy Communion from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. The service includes a reading of a Psalm appointed for the day, a reflection, the sharing of the bread and wine, and a time of quiet. Many students cherish this weekly time to be in chapel, to be peaceful in the middle of the week, and to celebrate the Eucharist.
Hallelujah! is an interdenominational worship experience that draws deeply from the richness and diversity of the African American church. H!, which is modeled after its predecessor on several university campuses, was founded at Lawrenceville in 2003 and meets as scheduled each month to offer a sacred space of worship where students can sing, clap, pray, and hear God’s word in an experience that feeds both the spirit and the intellect.
Roman Catholic mass is held weekly on campus. Services are open to the public and are regularly attended by faculty and staff within Lawrenceville and persons in the Lawrenceville community. All Roman Catholic holy days of obligation and moveable feasts are celebrated and honored through chapel services as well as educational and social events.
Vespers is a simple evening liturgy that may take various forms. Each evening may be dedicated to a meditation on a particular theme, such as a Choral Vespers, Organ Vespers, or Jazz Vespers, or a seasonal meditation, such as Advent Vespers, Epiphany Vespers, or Lenten Vespers. This time is meant to be a place of quiet rest, a space to reflect, to pray and be still, and to worship.
