Second Tuesdays Programs

The DeKoven Center’s popular Second Tuesdays series returns this year, with a fresh, new approach.  

As always, this series of free, public programs aims to inspire reflection and meditation, and is open to people of all faiths and interests. This time around we’ve expanded the focus to offer a broader range of subject matter.

The first of this year’s Second Tuesdays programs will explore an aspect of the DeKoven Center’s history, while the second program will address a spiritual topic. And the third program, scheduled in spring of 2019, will have an educational focus.  

All Second Tuesdays programs are held in Taylor Hall and run from 10 a.m. to noon on the second Tuesday of specific months. In addition to the presentation, each session offers time for coffee and conversation.

The 2018/2019 programs are scheduled as follows:

·         10 a.m. Tuesday, October 9

·         10 a.m. Tuesday, December 11

·         10 a.m. Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Please check back here soon for further details about these programs. More information is also available at

It will be framed by a series of readings, written by the Rev. Travis DuPriest from his homilies for Advent and Christmas, and presented by Max Dershem, executive director of the DeKoven Center. Travis’ thought-provoking homilies are based on various participants in the Christmas story, providing a unique outlook on the season.  

Guests can choose to be in silence if they wish.

Cost, including accommodations and meals, is $225 per person.
