I am faithful and passionate: transforming question marks into exclamation points. - ESD Manifesto
As one of our Founding Tenets, Daily Worship is at the center of our community, where our lives of faith can grow and we can celebrate the many traditions involved with being an ESD student.
Daily Worship nurtures a spiritual relationship with God within the context of our pluralistic and diverse community. Though most Daily Worship services take place within the hallowed halls of All Saints Chapel, daily, common prayer and reflection on God’s abiding presence inform our spiritual journey and reach beyond the chapel doors.
