Interested in applying for a week of Community Reflection time? 

You and/or your group need to fill out the application you find below.  All applications are due Monday of 8th week the preceding quarter.  Decisions are typically made by the end of 9th week.  Applications are judged on a variety of characteristics.  The selection committee tends to favor events that lead listeners/participants through a thoughtful, reflection on a matter of meaning or importance.  The committee tends to reject applications that come across as an advertisement for a group or a subject.  We hope that everyone who leaves community reflection feels that they have been challenged to think and feel in a new way.    If you have any other questions, contact Chaplain Candido at ecandido@kzoo.edu
