O heavenly Father, who has given us thy son, Jesus Christ, to be our friend and example, help us to understand his friendship and to do such things as would please him. Bless us in our work and in our play. Make us gentle, generous, truthful, kind and brave. Keep us in purity of heart and let the life of our school go on from strength to strength and have its place and meaning in thy kingdom. All of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
EDS is an Episcopal school, a community which professes the Christian faith as stated in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds, but all children of all faiths and cultural backgrounds are equally welcomed at EDS. Daily chapel time provides opportunities for spiritual development, personal growth, and sharing of oneself with the community.
