The Episcopal Tradition
The Episcopal What?
You will find a number of references to “the Episcopal tradition” throughout this website. But just what exactly does that mean? C. S. Lewis said it well: “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” At Holy Trinity, spiritual formation is at the core of the entire educational experience.
Episcopal schools exist not merely to educate, but to demonstrate and proclaim the unique worth and beauty of all human beings as creations of a loving, empowering God.

So, what’s so different about “the Episcopal tradition?”
We strive to foster spiritual formation in a grace-filled and inclusive manner. That “inclusive manner” is a distinguishing hallmark of the Anglican approach to education over many centuries.
We are Christian, our spiritual underpinnings rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the belief that God loves each one of us and desires to be in relationship with us. The Holy Bible informs and guides our experience as a community of faith in regular chapel services and monthly celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer provides the liturgical framework for our worship services.
ALL are welcome!
While all students and faculty attend our school chapel services, we desire that all persons of all denominations, non-Christian faith traditions or of no religious tradition feel embraced, respected and valued. All are invited to participate actively in our worship services. We encourage all who attend or work at Holy Trinity to seek clarity about their own beliefs and religions and to honor those traditions more fully and faithfully in their own lives.
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
