Through examining Trinity’s religious life on campus, this paper will help to explain the Chapel’s response to social issues from 1923 to the present. Over this time period, involvement and advocacy has ebbed and flowed. The responses of the Chapel community have relied heavily on the leadership of the current chaplain and the campus climate of the college. The Chapel’s historical value is embedded in the college’s history and identity. However, the significance the Chapel holds to the college more broadly is changing from a largely Episcopal background to both a social and moral haven for growth.
