At the toll of a bell Christians have been called to prayer for centuries. At Sewanee, our chapel bell helps us to keep our daily rhythm of prayer and Eucharist. Firmly rooted in the soul of the Anglican tradition, our worship has something for everyone. Each week our community is enhanced by participation in Rite II, Rite I, and EOW services. This steady cadence familiarizes us with the depth and breadth of the worship of The Episcopal Church. From my own experience, this regular participation in the Eucharist and Daily Office has anchored me in the tradition and mission of our Anglican faith.
Reorient your life to one of prayer, study, and service.
We are committed to the formation of leaders who are learned, skilled, informed by the Word of God, and committed to the mission of Christ’s church. The School of Theology’s seminary education and world-wide contextual education programs equip people for the challenges of 21st century ministry.
The master of divinity (M.Div.) curriculum is designed to provide students with the spiritual formation, knowledge, and skills required to become committed, effective ordained clergy. To this end, the curriculum includes study of Scripture, the Christian tradition, ministerial skills, and modern cultural contexts, with a view to the reasoned practice of the ministry of Word and Sacrament in both its historical context and its contemporary setting.
