Many of our programs at Calumet throughout the year are open to the public. This is where we list those events and we hope any and all will feel welcome to come. Calumet is a place that seeks to help individuals grow. Some of these events will help people grow in faith. Some might challenge someone's intellectual assumptions. Some might encourage participants in their appreciation of music and rhythym. Every single one of these events will allow for you to connect with other people -- some living close by and some from far off places.
Unless otherwise indicated, most programs take place in the Conference Center Dining Room with plenty of parking available. If there is ever a time when you want to learn more about a program, or if you have questions about accessibility or program details, don't hesitate to contact JUDY.
All are welcome! Really!
