Pittsburgh Theological Seminary


We are an academic institution, but one with a very special object: God. The goal of a theological school is to understand God truly. But God cannot be understood truly, and not be worshipped. Therefore worship is an integral part of our lives at PTS.

The Seminary community gathers for worship four times a week, Monday through Thursday, at 11:30 a.m. in Hicks Memorial Chapel. On Mondays we have Taizé prayer services, and on Thursdays we celebrate communion together. Worship is planned by Worship Teams who are each responsible for a week of worship. The overall program is led by the Seminary Chapel Team.

Within the Reformed identity of the Seminary, worship services are ecumenical in their expressions. We invite worship leaders to draw deeply on their own denominations’ liturgical traditions while, at the same time, orienting these to make them accessible to as many people in this community as possible.
