Celebrating 25 Years

The 2016-2017 school year marks 25 years for KAIROS. As we celebrate this milestone, KAIROS continues to envision lives transformed by God’s love into a new way of seeing God, self, others, and the world by seeking out and growing in freedom and compassion. May this vision continue to be lived out by students, faculty, and the many other friends that are a part of the KAIROS community.

We invite you to join in celebrating this 25 year milestone.

What people are saying…

“A clear and beautiful collection of reflections by the Kairos community, a place which has become ‘home to all journeys.’ These imaginative writings have strength and vision and are well supported by powerful photographic images. Each piece reflects an earnest expression of the journey we all take, and succeeds in encouraging the reader to live fully, now.”

– Paula D’Arcy –

Author of Gift of the Red Bird and Waking Up to This Day

“What a treasure! Created by the Kairos community, this book is a work of art that invites us into kairos moments. It glows with contemplative experience of the Spirit through the words, pictures, stories and rich color filling its pages. It’s a book to pray with, a book to cherish, and to give to others.
