Sunday Forum (10:15 to 11:05 am)

Join us in the Great Hall on most Sundays during the program year (early September through early June), for presentations that stimulate our imagination about living the Christian life in this community, in today’s changing world. Presentations by the rector and lay leaders are formative for our life as active members of the parish, and we also invite distinguished outside speakers to challenge us on a wide range of current issues. Forums include time for discussion.
