Study Retreat

Study Retreat

Study Retreats provide an opportunity to unite head and heart by putting study in the context of spiritual practice. Each day begins with breakfast and Morning Meditation, during which participants articulate what they intend to accomplish during the day. After a substantial period of study, participants gather for Mid-Day Meditation, followed by lunch and another study period. The day ends with Evening Meditation, during which participants check in about what they accomplished—celebrating successes and encouraging one another to keep working toward unmet goals. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided. Participation in Study Retreats is free of charge and available to all Boston University students. For more information or to register online, visit the Marsh Chapel website under the “Life Together” tab. (Contact: Br. Larry Whitney, lwhitney@bu.edu)

Abolitionist Chapel Today

Abolitionist Chapel Today

Marsh Chapel is reaching out in conversation with individuals and groups at Boston University and in the Massachusetts Abolitionist Network to raise awareness, educate, and involve people directly against the crime of modern-day slavery/human trafficking. Modern-day slavery is the world’s second-largest criminal activity, involving more than twenty-seven million people held in situations of forced labor/debt bondage, sexual exploitation, child soldiering, and/or sale of body parts. At least one million people live in slavery situations in this country alone, some of them in Boston. The good news is that many exciting things are being done, in Boston and around the world, to stop modern-day slavery/human trafficking. For more information, to extend the conversation, or to join the monthly research, program, and advocacy group, (all meetings with complimentary lunch) contact the Rev. Victoria Hart Gaskell, Chapel Associate, at vgaskell@bu.edu.
