2021-22 Scott Center Events
46 South St.
Take a moment to slow it down and use your creative mind!
Each week we’ll have materials for a different project — collaging on notebook covers and containers, origami, watercolors for illustrating poetry, etc.
And we’ll wrap you up some homemade cookies to take home with you!
Resumes in-person in Middlebury Chapel on September 22
Join Spiritual and Religious Life Dean Mark R. Orten for 20 minutes of quiet contemplation with reading and music for our times. Intentional silence and guided meditation will be interspersed with music and readings from secular worldviews and sacred traditions to open our awareness and to find strength and perspective for living during pandemical, political, racial, ecological and other upheavals.
College Vespers is a Christian evening worship service held each Thursday in Mead Chapel. All students, faculty, and staff are welcome at this peaceful, candle-lit gathering of prayer, music, readings, and meditative silence. Led by Affiliate Chaplain Rev. Andy Nagy-Benson and others, and sponsored by the Scott Center for Spiritual & Religious Life.
