Meeting for Worship at Westtown

Posted by Karl Vela '03 on Dec 30, 2015 1:00:00 PM


In all of my interviews with students, no matter the topic, an appreciation for the closeness that is cultivated between all members of the Westtown community emerges. Our students recognize its critical importance in formulating sound minds and open hearts. Time and time again they have explained to me that this closeness is central to what makes Westtown such a special place to live, learn, and grow.

Regardless of background or beliefs, Meeting for Worship is a core component of what brings the Westtown community together. For some it is sanctuary from a hectic schedule, for others it is a communion with God, but for each and every one of us, it is a place to connect with ourselves, our community, and the world around us. This month I talked with five students about their own feelings about Meeting for Worship and its place at Westtown.
