Two hundred years ago the founders of Princeton Theological Seminary wrote that it is to be a place that unites the “piety of the heart…with solid learning.” We who serve on the Chapel Office staff seek to create opportunities for students to grow personally and spiritually as they engage in seminary studies. Opportunities include participation in worship, music ministries, pastoral care, counseling, spiritual direction, holistic health initiatives, and much more. We invite you to explore the links below and we welcome your inquiries in the Chapel Office, which is located in Scheide Hall.

We hope that students will find a spiritual home while engaging in studies at Princeton Theological Seminary. Miller Chapel is open early each morning and remains open until late each evening, and we invite students to use this space for personal prayer and reflection.
Worship on campus happens in many forms and at many times. When classes are in session, we hold regular services of worship in Miller Chapel from Monday through Friday. The sacrament of Holy Communion is shared weekly. Students, faculty, staff, and Seminary choirs lead the services.
Because students at the Seminary are often far from their home faith communities, the minister of the chapel is available for pastoral care and support. This may include comfort in times of sorrow, prayer in times of need, and conversation regarding spiritual reflection and vocational discernment. The minister also may make referrals for formal spiritual direction or counseling.
The director of student counseling coordinates counseling services, spiritual direction resources, and other holistic health initiatives for students.
The Seminary choirs participate in daily chapel services and offer special concerts throughout the year. Ensembles such as the bell choir, gospel choir, and instrumental groups are generated by student initiative and supported by the Chapel Office. Practice rooms located in the basement of Scheide Hall are furnished with pianos and are available for student use.
