Common Meal

Throughout the school year the ESR community joins together for a common meal on Tuesdays at 11:20am. We begin by joining hands together in the gathering area of the ESR student center to share joys and concerns. A volunteer welcomes the group, encourages the sharing of joys and concerns, and then concludes the time with a blessing for the meal. Students, faculty, and staff pay by semester or per meal as they go through the line. The meal is served buffet style. Before the program begins a volunteer asks for announcements, and has visitors introduced. Several volunteers help with early and with late cleanup. A variety of programs are offered throughout the year and conclude at 1pm.
