2014 Baccalaureate Service

This multifaith celebration includes music by the Zumbyes and a class of 2014 jazz group, readings, dance and an address by Chris Stedman entitled, "Finding Ourselves in Service—and in One Another's Stories." Stedman is the assistant humanist chaplain at Harvard University and author of Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious.
Note: The service will end by 11:00 a.m. sharp so that those in attendance will have plenty of time to make their way to the "Conversations with Honored Guests" that start at 11:15 a.m.
