Chapel and Religion at St. John's
I've been meaning to write about chapel for quite some time now. Religion is a huge part of the school life here - you simply can't avoid it. Boys in "the college" have chapel every day except for Thursdays, and the girls in 6th Form have chapel three times a week. Any sort of required religious gathering at St. George's usually referred to with a sigh or a groan. Here at St. John's, on the other hand, students (or "learners") are all so excited to participate. Every single person sings along with the songs and responds aloud when appropriate. In addition, students regularly volunteer to read aloud during the one and a half hour long services, and Communion is given at nearly every single chapel service. It's so different to see everyone really getting into the church services!
