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.

Outreach Report

The Outreach Committee at the Siasconset Union Chapel, wishes to extend our sincere gratitude to all members of the congregation, for their ongoing generosity and support to the Outreach Program.

Thanks to all of you, we were able to contribute to 15 non profit organizations this year, that support ‘Health and Human Services’ to individuals in need, on Nantucket Island and beyond.

Our 2019 summer season was very active. We began in June with members of A SAFE PLACE joining us for a discussion about the invaluable work they do, to assist those suffering from domestic violence on island. Thanks to the generosity of many, we were able to host a POP UP event which provided many much needed supplies for parents and their children.

Summer 2020

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

I once had a friend who would say every time we had to adjust something, in a way that pleased him, “New occasions teach new duties.”  At times that statement annoyed me.  Over these last months that phrase has played repeatedly in my mind as a helper.  As we open the Chapel this season, we are living into a new occasion brought to us by COVID-19.  Many of us are returning to a place that has been ours by the rhythm of the changing of seasons.  Others who live here year-round also have a rhythm associated with the “season” now opening.  This year many pieces of that rhythm, that dependable sameness, are under significant shift.  I don’t need to innumerate that as we are living it in many places.

From Patti Brown

I hope this finds you healthy and hopeful as we approach our 137th year at the Siasconset Union Chapel. Although the Summer 2020 season might be different than what we have anticipated and experienced in the past, it will be wonderful to reunite with friends and neighbors, in perhaps new socially distanced ways.
