The Liturgist-in-Residence will offer a series of special programs open to the community related to creating liturgy and ritual. Programming may include a combination of multi-session workshops, innovative prayer experiences, an evening or Shabbat program, and/or a program specifically geared for kids or teens. These programs will be open to the entire community and will be equivalent to teacher-level service (approximately 6-8 contact hours over the week).

The NHC’s flagship program, the week-long Summer Institute, will be held July 23-29 at the University of Hartford. This is a unique opportunity for serious study, moving prayer, spirited conversation, late-night jam sessions, singing, dancing, meditation – all in the company of more than 300 people from a wide range of backgrounds. Each year, participants leave the Institute reinvigorated and excited to return to their home communities to share new ideas, skills, and experiences.
