Star of Wonder

Enjoy the Lower School Epiphany chapel talk!

“Let us kick off 2019 with the gifts of openness and wonder,” the Rev. Leslie Chadwick suggested in a Lower School chapel talk dedicated to the Feast of the Epiphany, commemorating the maji's visit to the newborn baby Jesus. “We, at St. Albans, have so much to learn and discover together. We do that in science labs, in studying ancient myths, in exploring the beauty and order of math. But when we gather here together in chapel, a community rich in religious diversity—people sitting side by side from different backgrounds, we have a chance to be still and wonder. To remember that we are on a long, slow journey together following God’s light. It does not burn out like the light of worldly leaders. It burns as brightly for us as it did for the people who wrote these ancient stories and will burn long after us.”

Form C teacher Kristin Elliott and her family joined students to re-enact the story of the magi and the Epiphany.

Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
