The Chapel of the Good Shepherd also known as the Episcopal House or the Chapel in the Woods, is an historic Carpenter Gothic house of worship located on Clark Avenue on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York, USA. Its dedication on July 2, 1894, was reported in the New York Times the next day.[1]

The Chapel of the Good Shepherd is a contributing property in the Chautauqua Institution Historic District.

Current use[edit]

The chapel is open primarily during the summer months when the Chautauqua Institution holds its annual session. During that time the Holy Eucharist is celebrated Sunday mornings at 7:45 and 9:00 so as not to conflict with the 10:45 ecumenical service of worship in the amphitheater. At 9:15 on Sunday nights there is a service of Compline in the chapel. Other services are scheduled throughout the week.

The chapel is used during the summer season by the Chautauqua Roman Catholic Community for daily Mass.[2]
