A Place for Spiritual Exploration
The Center is supported in large part by the Charis Ecumenical Catholic Community. It is a shared space for meetings, retreats, classes, prayer and other activities designed to bring people closer to the God of their understanding. Charis prays at the Center on Sundays at 10 a.m. Additionally, the Ishayas of the Bright Path North America currently call the Center home. They regularly offer introductions to their meditation technique, Ascension, during the week as well as instruction in how to Ascend. Likewise, The Interfaith Circle also will be offering gatherings and roundtable discussions in the months ahead at the Center.
The Center honors the unique qualities of the great religious traditions.
The Center helps people connect with each other in a safe, non-exclusive environment to explore spirituality and religion in rich and creative ways. The space is also available for rent by any community group in need of a modest size meeting space.
The Charis Center’s staff and leadership provide promotional and logistical support for events. They do not produce content or programming. Sponsors of activities at the Center therefore have the freedom to maintain the integrity of their faith practices and the unique character of their religious traditions. At the Center, people encounter each other and share in each other’s experiences without compromising the religious and spiritual expressions of their traditions.
