Our Chapel

our chapel1

Theological education is a spiritual as well as an intellectual endeavor. Chapel life brings these two aspects together as the learning community comes to know and express itself as a praying community. Chapel life is an integral part of the Queen’s College experience.

The schedule of worship provides students with an opportunity to enhance their skills in liturgical preparation using the Book of Alternative Services (1985), the Book of Common Prayer (Canadian, 1959/62) and Common Praise (1998).  In addition to the regular use of the rites and resources included in these books, we are committed to the use of gender-inclusive language and constructing distinctive liturgy that both respects the breadth of biblical imagery and metaphor, and takes seriously the contemporary need for liturgical forms that nourish the varied modes of the human praying spirit.

Worship Committees are responsible for the weekly cycle of worship, consisting of Eucharist(s), daily offices and special liturgies as appropriate to the church year.  Each semester prospective  postulants, postulants and ordinands are assigned to a worship committee, which prepares and reflects upon the worship of the community.  Students registered in other College programs are invited to participate fully in the work of the Worship Committees.our chapel2

The chapel, in addition to being a place of worship, is also a place where many of the practical skills required for effective presiding can be practiced and honed. 

Students are responsible for officiating and reading the lections at the daily offices; and assisting at Eucharist by serving, reading, leading the Prayers of the People or Intercessions, deaconing and administering the chalice.

The attending of chapel liturgies is open to the wider campus community and to the public.
