Light Offerings: Fire & Water Rituals

The MDiv 530 Interfaith Rituals for Chaplaincy class will once again participate in the celebration of International Education & Interfaith Week by welcoming everyone to witness and take part in the class’s rituals project.

Students will share their awareness and developing skills in working within the multicultural and multi-religious environment of today’s hospitals, schools, and prisons among others.

The rituals will include themes of light, water, and fire. The rituals will be performed in Ken Locke this year, starting at 3:30pm Pacific Time.
