Lower School Religious Studies Subject Overview
ESD students and faculty have attended daily chapel since the very first day of school in 1974. Because this time is central to our community, attendance is mandatory. On Wednesdays, Holy Eucharist is held weekly for Upper School and Middle School. On the first Wednesday of the month, second-fourth graders observe Holy Eucharist. During this worship service, everyone comes forward as a sign of their thanksgiving in their faith and receives either the sacrament of bread/wine, or a non-denominational blessing, reflecting our belief that God’s grace is offered to all people.
