The student life at St Andrew's is very rich and engaging. Full and part time students, whether residential or non-residential, are given many opportunities to participate in various extra-curricular activities and events to help establish the bonds of friendship and balance out their workload.
Corporate worship and spiritual reflection in the Chapel of St John the Evangelist and Theologian are the very heart of College life and its program of spiritual formation. Of course, by virtue of their respective programs of study, different groups of students will have different opportunities to participate in services.
During Semester: Participation in the daily, weekly and annual cycle of services is the first spiritual obligation of every student – particularly those who are studying full-time and have declared their intention to prepare for the priesthood. Students enrolled in the four year program are expected to take an active part in reading, chanting and serving, since this will make up part of their Liturgical Studies assessment. In view of the importance of all aspects of worship within the College itself and Orthodox life as a whole, each undergraduate student’s participation will be regularly reviewed by the Chaplain.Postgraduate students are invited to attend and participate at Chapel whenever they are on campus and as their timetable schedule permits.
During Residential Schools: Students are invited to attend chapel as often as possible. Services are held daily for students according to their timetable schedule.
All students are expected to share in the liturgical life of the community under the guidance of a spiritual father and to aspire to lead a sacramental life with regular reflection upon the teachings of the Holy Fathers and the Holy Scriptures.
