Our Episcopal Identity
Part of being an Episcopal school includes the celebration of various seasons in the Episcopal Church. Episcopal School of Nashville held a Pancake Supper to celebrate Shrove Tuesday, the day before a season of penitence in the traditional liturgical calendar. We followed the event with an Ash Wednesday service at the beginning of Lent. In Holy Week, we held a Maundy Thursday service, offering the ritual of the washing of feet, meant to epitomize the night of the Last Supper where Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. Chaplain Lara Wiggins reminded us that we are all invited to have our feet washed and to wash the feet of others. Our students observed Good Friday with their families, taking the day off from school.
