Drop in for a ‘peaceful moment’ at the Faber Center, Feb. 21 

The Faber Center for Ignatian Spirituality offers the campus community a quiet space to relax and center your being on Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Schroeder Complex 111. Stop by during the open house and take advantage of a wonderful space to just be.  

Various materials will be available for those interested in activity during their visit, but everything will be at your discretion. Beverages and light snacks will also be available. 

As the Christian community enters the Lenten season, it offers a chance to reflect more deeply on our spiritual lives. To that end, The Faber Center invites faculty and staff to several events in the next few weeks.
