Midday Prayer and Convivium Lunch

convivium

"Convivium" --to be alive at the same time, be contemporary;  
to spend one’s time in company, live together; to dine together.

Midday Prayer and Convivium Lunch is a weekly Saint John's School of Theology and Seminary community tradition, where we gather for prayer and lunch. Meals are prepared and regularly attended by faculty, staff and students. All are welcome any week and every week! Cost is free!

When: Thursdays at 11:30am starting in Emmaus Hall Chapel 

(These are now virtually held until further notice)
