Those selected arrive at the beginning of the term to participate in an orientation together. In addition to the work, participants are encouraged, but not required, to be a part of other aspects of our community life. There are shared meals, daily chapel services, a weekly Gathered Worship, discussion groups, and plenty of fellowship, which helps participants to immerse themselves and more fully experience life in community.
