Thursday Night Interfaith Suppers

Celebrating 50 Years of Interfaith Dialogue in the Brown Community!!

For more than 50 years, the Thursday Night Interfaith Supper program (TNS) has been one of the key interfaith initiatives of the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life.  The dinners are a monthly gathering open to students of all programs held in the home of the Chaplain of the University. Gathering on the Third Thursday Night of each month*, the evening comprises dinner and conversation with invited speakers who discuss how the life of the spirit guides their professional and personal lives. Those who attend represent the full breadth of the Brown community as well as a wide range of religious, faith, spiritual, and ethical perspectives. Thus, TNS has been a place for delicious food, inspiring speakers, respectful community, and invigorating conversation on matters of interfaith dialogue and spirituality.

Suppers begin at 5:30 p.m. and end by 7:00 p.m. If you have dietary restrictions, please be sure to use the sign-up form in advance of the dinner. 


Our first Thursday Night Supper of the semester will be held Thursday, September 15th at 5:30 pm.
