This fall, our community experienced traumatic and life altering events which have taken an emotional toll on all of us.
This spring, the Cal Lutheran community is invited to find resilience and strength by coming “Together.” Events and opportunities that cultivate hope, healing, and growth will be offered throughout the semester. These will be spiritual, artistic, musical, crafty, or just times of fun!
Come together as we build resilience as individuals and as a community. Come together as we find ways to express the truth of our hearts. Come together to find empowerment in a world where we can often feel powerless. Come together.
