Our Story

St. Elizabeth’s Chapel was built in the early 1920’s by descendants of Alexander Hamilton and J.P. Morgan in memory of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, the daughter of William Pierson Hamilton and Juliet Pierpont Morgan Hamilton. Elizabeth was born in 1908 and died shortly after her tenth birthday in the influenza epidemic that swept across the country at the end of World War I. 

What To Expect

Worship services are dignified and family-oriented. The Bible and the Book of Common Prayer are the foundation of our worship services and theological teachings. Our worship of Jesus Christ is orthodox and sacramental. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Sundays and other religious holidays throughout the year following the liturgy in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Sacred music is generally from the traditional "1940 Hymnal," while a more contemporary selection often prepares the faithful for worship. We believe that Christ’s sacrifice was given to unify the faithful and we welcome baptized Christians of all faiths to receive Holy Communion.
