Religious & Spiritual Life Services

The department of Religious and Spiritual Life at Phillips Exeter is sometimes called the "heart team" in our community. Our rich, and varied interfaith communities seek to care for the many threads of religious and spiritual life at Phillips Exeter (including those with no formal religious or spiritual affiliation). Phillips Church is our central hub for our life together, particularly our basement space which is warm, vibrant, and inviting to all who may wish to enter. Though you are just as likely to find one of our adults on the path, in grill, watching a sports game, and more in an effort to support the entire community. Your big questions are welcome here. No matter who you are or where you are on your Exonian journey, you are welcome to any of our offerings, and in Phillips Church.

Due to the pandemic, all campus buildings and grounds are closed to visitors until further notice. We remain committed to connecting with our larger Exeter community of alumni, parents and applicants through virtual programming. Please contact the Religious and Spiritual Life Office for details.
