SoL Mission Statement 

SoL Mission Statement


The SoL Center serves to educate adults, regardless of their religious background, who seek to explore all aspects of religious faith in the 21st century. The Center organizes, sponsors, and co-sponsors classes, lecture series, and dramatic and musical programs led by teacher-scholars and professionals. They share their insights and viewpoints, applying their knowledge and experience on a broad range of subjects and encouraging open, respectful discussions and active learning by participants. In the eight years since the SoL Center was founded, approximately 5,000 people have enjoyed its enlightening programs. We invite your contributions as well as your continued and full participation to enable and enrich the understandings, the relationships, and ultimately the lives within and among the faith communities of San Antonio. If you wish to support the work of the SoL Center monetarily, please indicate the amount of your gift and provide your contact information. If circumstances prevent you from making a monetary donation at this time, there are other ways you can support the work of the SoL Center as a volunteer (ambassador). Contact Lucy Burton, SoL Center Director. Mail donations to The SoL Center at UPC, 300 Bushnell Ave, San Antonio, TX 78212.


The Light (see link above) is published by the SoL Center four times a year, and these links will take you to the lastest pdf versions of that publication where you can see a full listing of our current courses.
