Life Together

St. Stephen’s College is excited to launch Life Together, an online, monthly gathering for spiritual reflection and personal formation.   life-together-thumbnail.jpeg

Life Together gatherings provide opportunities for spiritual sharing, reflection, and engagement across the various traditions and worldviews represented in the St. Stephen’s community.  The aim of Life Together is to promote spiritual wellness by celebrating, valuing, and learning from the diverse spiritual paths represented within the College.  These gatherings will be experiential in nature, process oriented, and rooted in mutual respect and sharing.  Participants are invited to engage in openness to one’s self and to one’s neighbour.

Life Together gatherings will be hosted by Dr. Kehinde Olabimtan, the College’s Community Chaplain and Director of Spiritual Wellness.  Joining Kehinde will be a variety of guest facilitators.  Each gathering will focus on subjects of reflection that vary according to the seasons and events going on around us.

Life Together gatherings are open to members of the college, university, and wider communities.

All are welcome!  Come join us as we celebrate, value, and learn from the spiritual paths and processes represented in our midst.
