Spiritual Life

Pacifica believes that one of most important aspects of education is encouraging the development of faith, character, and service to the glory of God. We are not simply after apt minds that can nimbly move through a complex argument. Reason without root is, quips G.K. Chesterson, reason in the void. Reason rooted in first principles of faith is the goal. We are concerned about how our students are living and will live. The virtues of humility, courage, love, generosity, joy, justice, thanksgiving, and peace are paramount to a life well lived. The scripture encourages us to care for widows and orphans (James 1:27). It encourages us to care for the sick and elderly. It encourages us to do this for their sake as well as ours.

For these reasons, Pacifica has committed to providing programs and opportunities to encourage students in their pursuit of God and the living out of their faith in the community. We seek to encourage students to love God with both heart and mind. (Mark 12:30)

Pacifica has established regular Chapel times on Wednesdays from 10:45pm – 11:40am. Chapel is reserved for prayer, singing, and a short lesson by a staff member or guest speaker. All students and staff attend chapel together, one of the few times a week the entire school is present together. 

The goal of chapel at Pacifica is to tell God’s story to all students so that they may walk further down the road on their spiritual journey. The amazing life of Christ and His gospel message is a message of hope and one that transforms lives. The Pacifica administration and faculty are devoted to living authentic lives and embracing all students regardless of their religious background. We believe that the pursuit of God happens as students, parents, and faculty engage in an honest and open conversation.
