By Phillip Craig, Head of Chaplaincy
The Reverend Phillip Craig joined OES in 2007, having served 10 years prior as Head Chaplain at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Ordained as an Episcopal priest in 1995, he received his BA from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and his MDiv from Virginia Theological Seminary.
More than 10 years ago, our then Lower School Chaplain Jenny Cleveland introduced a new and simple liturgical element to Chapel - a prayer basket. From that point forward, this invitation has been regularly visible and accessible to all lower school children (and employees). Small pieces of colored paper and pencils have provided easy access for anyone to write down a prayer for something important.
