2020 Online Service Viewable Below
Since 1872, Pequot Chapel has held summer services for area residents and visitors every year. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, we're pleased to announce the tradition continues. Although we couldn't welcome you into the Chapel this year, with today's technology, we can bring the Chapel to you. Below you can watch the beautiful and inspiring service recorded the week of August 9th, 2020, with a sermon from Reverend Florence Clarke (also a Pequot Trustee) titled, "Divine Interruption". The service was recorded in stages for the safety of all involved.
Many thanks to Reverend Clarke, Reverend Maria Hammons, Reverend Danny Hammons, Peter Fiore (organist), Phred Mileski (soloist), Trustee Lisa McGinley (reader), and Trustee and Presiding Officer Andrew Walker (speaker, videographer, and editor) for all their work to make this first-ever online service for Pequot Chapel a reality. Additional thanks to Hannah Walker for her editing expertise.
Despite the medical, social, and political upheaval across the globe, faith, love, and community endure. Our doors WILL open again. We look forward to seeing you then and celebrating life's blessings. Until then, enjoy this virtual service, be safe, and stay well.

Given the severity and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pequot Trustees cancelled all 2020 Sunday services in the interest of safety to our clergy, musicians, and visitors. If anyone wishes to donate money they would have placed in a plate collection during a Sunday service we would greatly appreciate your support to offset the chapel's fixed costs. You can mail a check to 36 Jerome Road, New London, CT 06320, or use the Paypal link on our Donate page.
We wish you all health and peace in this difficult time.
