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 Rev.
J. Carr Holland III

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

As children we were taught, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Often this ‘Golden Rule’ was stressed to me after I had violated the norm. I only later learned that it comes from Matthew (7:12). The origin did not matter, the meaning did.  In time it became a reminder that we may teach others how we want to be treated by the respect that we show them. Later it became my character. 

Recently, we sold our beach house on the Outer Banks.  It went on the market quickly, before the ‘to do’ list was fully accomplished, and sold the first day, complete with most of what Maxwell and I accumulated over two decades of beach life. Even selling furnished, there were owners’ closets and personal things – not to mention a packed shed -- to be sorted and emptied. 


Letter from the Board President

Summer  2021

Dear Friends of the Chapel,

Welcome to the Chapel’s 138th season, with renewed hopes for a more familiar summer than we were allowed last year. The Chapel Worship Committee, led by Catherine Saynor, has been busy meeting virtually this Spring to determine what services and events the Chapel can offer and when. Governor Baker’s new guidance beginning on May 29, 2021 along with local Episcopal Diocese instructions as of May 20, 2021, will allow forms of gathering in person. I know we all are eager to resume our shared sense of community through worship and fellowship.
