- Candlelight Vespers with Dinner - 6:00 -7:15pm, Sunday, Feb. 3 in the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life .
The new vespers service this semester, will allow us to gather together in community for dinner, faith conversations, and celebration of the Eucharist. As questions and challenges in the course of college life can leave us feeling uprooted and searching, please join with others to celebrate the support of community and those connections that deepen our search for the Sacred and what grounds us in life.
