Capax Dei (“Space for God”) spiritual formation groups meet weekly in a variety of locations both on- and off-campus. Led by faculty, staff and alumni, Capax Dei groups foster a deeper walk with God through prayer and reflection on Scripture, and provide an introduction to the classical spiritual disciplines of the Christian faith. Examples of groups include “Lectio Divina,” “Evensong,” and “Praying Through the Psalms.”
