Spirituality

The mission statement of The Cathedral School highlights its Episcopal identity as a community that welcomes children and families of all faiths. In our approach to the study of religion and emphasis on character education, we welcome the diverse voices and experiences of our community into the conversation. Through chapel, all-school evensongs, and classroom inquiry, The Cathedral School is a place where students can begin to explore the important questions of purpose and meaning.

Know Wonder: Inclusive Spirit, Cultural Competency

What is an Episcopal Education?

Begins from the premise that we (faculty, students, administrators, staff) are all a community of explorers, that we all need to continue to learn and to grow

Encourages all students, faculty, and staff to pursue questions wherever they lead, to use their critical faculties, to value the learning and thought we have inherited from the past

Does not enforce an unquestioning acceptance of a preordained set of doctrines

Raises issues of meaning, identity, and ultimate truth
    • Chaplain Gina Gore

"The Cathedral School invites the students into a variety of spiritual experiences that honor many religious traditions, including the five major religions of the world. From this, students learn to respect the many expressions of belief and spirituality, their curiosity is welcomed, their inspiration is shared, and they are shaped for a lifetime of wonder about faith."
