St. Mary's School Chapel
All students attend Chapel at St. Mary's, which is held every week on Wednesdays. The Reverend Mark D. Story, Rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Edmond, serves as chaplain and oversees all of the worship planning. Parents are always invited to attend chapel services with their children.
The reading or telling of stories from Holy Scripture is a significant part of the chapel experience. Also, students actively participate in the service by using their skills in reading and singing as well as serve as acolytes and readers while participating fully in the praise of God.
Our Wednesday Chapel services include an upper chapel (2nd-5th grade) and a lower chapel (preschool-1st grade). Our 2nd through 5th-grade students also participate in a worship service on Mondays - "Monday Morning Meditation".
Time is given for individual prayers and expressions of concerns about others. The primary purpose of chapel is to hear God's word in Holy Scripture, rehearse the faith of the church in the Creedal Statement of Belief and offer prayers. Chapel is an offering of each child to the Lord - their thoughts, prayers, hopes, beliefs, and dreams.
