The Schweitzer Chapel provides a place of worship for the people of Schweitzer Mountain, a retreat facility with a historical tradition of serving Christian youth groups on weekends and Holidays of the ski season and a meeting place for Christian organizations throughout the year conducted by Moody Bible College. Both a Catholic Mass and a non-denominational Christian service are available during the ski season. Schweitzer Chapel is a non-profit Christian organization, administered in public trust by a volunteer board of directors.
There are several unique qualities of the Chapel that make it attractive to the many youth and church groups that use it continuously in the winter season. In addition to having a separate, intimate sanctuary for worship, this ski-in/ski-out Chapel provides a kitchen facility, dining area, recreational area and a recently built two-story dormitory that sleeps 48 people. The new dormitory has separate men’s and women’s floors and full bathrooms and shower facilities for each.
These are best expressed with a prayer which was given many years ago and is included in the original by-laws.
Our Father, we thank You for Your many blessings upon our endeavor to build this beautiful chapel. May we always remember that the beauty of this mountain which has given us so much pleasure, and which we love so dearly, was created by YOU. Guide us in our decisions, and show us the way so all may know this was done for YOUR sake and in YOUR name. AMEN
