We hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving Break! Here are the last few events that PCC will be having this semester:
Sunday, December 8 will be PCC’s annual Lessons and Carols service, featuring students from PCC singing in our yearly Christmas Choir. We hope you can join us for this special service!
Sunday, December 15, we will still be having service at 5! It will be a slightly lower-key service, but it will include communion and Christmas cookie decorating immediately afterwards. Feel free to join us for one event or the other- we know Reading Period is a busy time for everyone!
We wish everyone the best of luck on their final exams, and we wish everyone a peaceful, restful, and wonderful Christmas break!
We’ve had some great events so far at PCC this fall semester- take a look at some photos from our Lock In and Harry Potter Dinner Dialogue on our Facebook page!
Our next two October events are taking place during Meliora Weekend. On Friday, October 11, the Protestant Chapel Community will be hosting an Open House in the Brennan Room of the Chapel from 4:00-5:30 PM. There will be a special display board celebrating our 50th anniversary along with refreshments and a small performance from our new Chapel Cappella group! Please stop by and feel free to bring guests!
On Saturday, October 12, the Chapel will be hosting a panel discussion “No Longer Invisible: Religion in University Education” from 9:00-11:00 AM in the Chapel Sanctuary. This panel will feature Douglas and Rhonda Jacobsen, co-directors of the Religion in the Academy Project, a major research initiative examining the roles of religion in higher learning. They have co-authored three books with Oxford University Press, including No Longer Invisible: Religion in University Education (2012). The panel will also include responders Edward Wierenga (Professor of Religion and Philosophy; Chair, department of Religion and Classics), Richard Dees (Associate Professor of Philosophy; Chair, Steering Committee for Public Health-related programs), Denise Yarbrough (Director of Religious and Spiritual Life), and students Fatima Bawany ’15, Daniel Gorman ’14 (a member of PCC!), and Aaron Marans ’16. Learn more about the event here. We hope to see you there!
