The Siasconset Union Chapel was built in 1883 as an ecumenical “House of Worship” and has hosted Protestant and Roman Catholic services for many years since. The Chapel is at the heart of the “Sconset community. It is the meeting place for prayer, song, message, marriage, contemplation and a place for annual renewal and resumption of friendships.

The ‘Sconset Chapel property consists of the Chapel building, a parsonage, the community green and the memorial gardens with our Columbarium. In 2007, the Massachusetts Historical Commission granted an historic preservation restriction to the Chapel ensuring that it will remain as is for years to come.

Letter from the Board Chair

Fall 2014

From Catherine Saynor

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

The leaves are starting to fall in Sconset and there is that sweet sadness  in the air associated with the partings  from people and places that we love. We have had a glorious summer in every sense of the word and already the anticipation of our return is a seed, planted in our hearts, like the bulbs for next spring.

Fall 2014

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

In October the final wedding occurred and the needlepoint was safely stored for the winter.  The village has grown quieter.  Those who keep a longer season here enjoy the sighting of each other and longer visits on more leisurely days.

Even as we draw the season to a close, we enjoyed a record Chapel turn out for the Annual Chef’s Dinner in support of the Nantucket Food Pantry. That is a fitting end to a wonderful season.  This good work by the Interfaith Council lingers when many of us are gone.  While so many of us come to recreate, we also remember those who work hard to keep this Island a kind place.  As we enjoy enormous blessings, we also seek to be attentive to those whose lives are a little more hard pressed.
