Prayer, Justice Cafe, and Homecoming Week

Did you know that your University Ministers are here to pray for and with you?

If you have a prayer request please send it to us, and we will be happy to pray for you.  You can send a request via email (chiggins@marylhurst.edu), reply to this blog, slip a request under the door of Marian 104, or leave your request in one of the envelopes located on bulletin boards throughout campus.  No need to use your name, unless you wish for us to pray for you by name.

Coming soon — we are going to join with other young men and women throughout the United States and Africa to discuss justice issues in a program called, “Justice Cafes”.  These cafes are sponsored by IPJC (Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center), an organization dedicated to the work of justice funded by members of Catholic religious orders.  More to come on this exciting project.

Also, on October 4th we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis.  There is a nation wide call for people to “Take the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor.”  You may find out more information about this amazing project via their website — CatholicClimateCovenant.org.  It is a free resource, so feel free to share and pass it on to others you know that care about the earth.

Finally, On Wednesday, October 12th we will be holding the first of five interfaith panels as a part of the Marylhurst’s Homecoming events.  This first panel will be on Sustainability.  We are scheduled for 6:30 pm in the Old Library, with the panel beginning at 7:00.



Many blessings, as we slide into September!


Carol
