Welcome and Announcements: Dr. Cecilia Ranger, SNJM
We join in prayer for the life of the Archbishop of Port-au-Prince, Monsignor Joseph Serge Miot and the hundreds of thousands of our Haitian brothers and sisters who have lost their lives, homes, health and security in the massive earthquake that devastated the island nation. We pray for the missing, for those who grieve and for the health and safely workers providing a living witness of the power of love as they work tirelessly in the relief efforts.
Any donations of funds collected at the Light and Life Prayer Service will be given to the Medical Teams International relief effort in Haiti. If you aren’t prepared to contribute at the service, Marylhurst is collecting funds in our HR department make checks payable to Medical Teams International.
Donations of food will be given to the Oregon Food Bank because the need here at home does not stop because of a global disaster.
In union the Marylhurst University Campus Group Labyrinth Alliance our prayers and solidarity are with those in Haiti. After Thursday night’s service those of you who don’t have class are invited to Flavia Hall to walk the Labyrinth for the intentions of the people of Haiti.
Marylhurst’s net proceeds from the up-coming Vienna Boys Choir concerts on March 3 and 4 will be given to the Medical Teams International relief effort in Haiti. (Since the concert is co-sponsored with our partners Music for the Heart, their share of the proceeds will still go to benefit their foundation which supports heart health and research.)
Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster.com.
