While finances should not prohibit participation, we do ask each participant to commit to this effort.
If you aren't available over Memorial Day Weekend for the Immersion itself, you can always participate in our Interfaith Cohort: Exploring Faith in the City, which consists of the formation experience as well as the religious site visits in King County. There is no cost associated with the Interfaith Cohort. Applications are available through ConnectSU.
