The thirdspace_ community at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Multi-Faith Resource Centre, campus clubs and a local church present Shamrock Café, an alternative St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
It’s the second year in a row that the café will take place in the seminary’s Keffer Chapel.
During last year’s event, more than 200 students and Laurier staff dropped into Keffer Chapel throughout the day to listen to live music, play board games and munch on free snacks, says Anne Anderson, community pastor and leader of the thirdspace_ community.
“We had some great conversations and had a blast being together,” she said. “We’re looking forward to doing it again this year.”
Organizers of this year’s café include Laurier Christian Fellowship, Chinese Christian Fellowship, The Embassy church, Red Frogs, Power to Change, thirdspace_, and Laurier’s Multi-Faith Resource Centre.
“In addition to the activities in the chapel, teams of volunteers will be handing out water to students on Bricker Avenue and Ezra Avenue throughout the day,” Anderson said. “They’ll be spreading a simple message: ‘Be safe.’ ”
Shamrock Café will take place on March 17 in the Keffer Chapel at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and all are welcome.
