Lunch and Learn

The Academy of Lifelong Learning at St. Mary’s Sewanee provides monthly opportunities to local residents and visitors to hear varying topics from presenting speakers. A small annual membership fee of $12 entitles you to a full year of admission to these lunches designed to offer creative and cultural spiritual experiences. Optional box lunches are available for $12. Programs are generally held the second Thursday of the month. They begin at noon and last for an hour.   Click here for information on the 2017 Lunch and Learn programs
