Quest Book Group

The Interfaith Center hosts Quest, a monthly interfaith discussion group that features a book about a particular religious tradition that gives insight into matters of faith. Each engaging and challenging session is facilitated by a leader from the respective religious community. Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions and perspectives to the dialogue.
