Learning & Faith

Humbled by the vast mystery of God, we are ever engaged in deep and authentic spiritual inquiry. We believe there is always more of the truth to behold, more beauty to savor, more joy to taste, more kindness to share, more peace to know. Through the arts of study and prayer and service, we aspire to love God “with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.”
