Offerings Through the Lifespan

We provide children, youth, young adults and adults opportunities to explore, reflect and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Our offerings inspire:

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
  • Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
  • Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among and beyond us.

The Podcast Is Done!

Ruby, Ronan, Meara, and Nim persevered not only through the pandemic over the last year but also through the creation of their first podcast entirely over zoom. Give it a listen here and give them a big shout-out!

And a big shout out to Ruby Preston for her beautiful words and the cool chalice podcast logo!

Volunteer Afternoon at the Community Garden in Plattsburgh

On Saturday, June 5, at 2 p.m., we will take some time out of our busy lives to give back to the community by volunteering at the community garden in Plattsburgh. Research has shown that volunteering our time and energy for a cause bigger than ourselves is about more than just giving back. When we volunteer, we are on the receiving end as well. Volunteering counters stress, anger and anxiety and has overall positive health effects. All ages are welcome and we would love to see you!
