The Center holds monthly gatherings open to the general public at various breweries in Manchester. Each gathering features a presentation of no more than 15 minutes by a Saint Anselm College faculty member or expert from the community on an important moral controversy, followed by 45 minutes of guided discussion. The goal of these meetups is to introduce community members to a practice of reflection and deliberation on moral problems and dilemmas, and ultimately, to enrich the moral life of the greater Manchester, New Hampshire community.
