The Emmanuel Chapel
“Lord Jesus Christ, we worship you living among us in the sacrament of your body and blood. May we offer to our Father in heaven a solemn pledge of undivided love. May we offer to our brothers and sisters a life poured out in loving service of the kingdom where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit one God for ever and ever” (Opening Prayer, Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ).
Among the many rooms at The Prout School, our campus chapel stands out as particularly distinctive. It is a sacred space set apart for conversation with God. The chapel is called the “Emmanuel Chapel,” a reference to a passage in the Gospel of Matthew: “Behold the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him ‘Emmanuel,’ which means, ‘God is with us’” (Matthew 1:23). The Emmanuel Chapel reminds us that God is with us! Jesus Christ stands at the heart and center of the Prout community.
The Emmanuel Chapel is open during regular school hours and all are welcome to visit! Prayer services are held in the chapel at different times throughout the year, and small groups can participate in the Celebration of the Eucharist. Students and faculty are invited to take a moment from their busy schedules to rest in the presence of God.
