Credo 2018 Slideshow

It has been a whirlwind of a summer here at Credo! We hope you have been following along on our facebook page to see the latest updates. Over the weekend we had the Credo Oberlin Finale concerts and they were fantastic! On Saturday we were sad to say goodbye to our 3-week session students who headed home after the finale concert. While our three weeks in Oberlin went by presto, the impact of these experiences and friendships will be felt for many weeks, months and years to come.

Credo Shirt Day is coming! So grab your Credo shirt when you go home for spring break, start planning your Creunions wherever you are, and start thinking about how to get your cat to sit still while you take a photo of her in your Credo t-shirt.

I’d like to share with you some particularly special ways that this mission has been engaged around the country this winter
