Please join me and other members of the Marylhurst community for a moment of silence and a picture to be shared through Marylhurst’s communications in front of the
Peace Pole outside BP John, Tuesday Nov 24th at 12pm.

In this time of turbulence and turmoil, near and far, let us stand together in solidarity to share our message of Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward All.

SOLATIUM, a music ensemble featuring Marylhurst alumni Michelle Wodtli and Art Viloria with friends, will provide music of comfort, peace, healing and restoration for the soul at an interfaith candlelit prayer vigil. This prayer vigil, sponsored by Marylhurst University Campus Ministry, offers light and love for our collective experience of shock, loss, grief and uncertainty in the aftermath of violence in Paris. All are invited; the public is welcome. Come for all or part, as schedule allows.

6pm-7pm in Flavia Hall.

Here a couple of links (sorry you may have to copy and paste) about the event:

— Thursday, November 19, the 2015 Collins Lecture, “The Gospel of Conquest: Native Americans, Christianity and the Doctrine of Discovery.”

The 2015 Collins Lecture “The Gospel of Conquest” will explore the history of the Doctrine of Discovery—the 15th century basis for European Christian claims to the Americas—and examine its continued influence on relations among church, tribe and state. Native American scholars and spiritual guides will lead us on a journey—rich in ceremony, music, story and shared meals—into the heart of our sacred connection to the ancestral stewards of this land, calling us to reflect and to move forward with hope into future action for the common good.

We are very excited to announce our first Marylhurst University Mission trip!  We will be taking a small group of students, staff, faculty, alumns, and friends of the university to Jonestown, Mississippi.  The trip will be during Spring Break, March 23-30. (We are thinking we’ll leave on Saturday and return the following Saturday — but we may shift to Sunday if air fair is significantly cheaper.)  The estimated cost of the trip is $1,300 which includes air fair, motel, ground transportation, and simple meals.  Students may take this trip as a 3 credit course, which will require additional work once we return from the trip.
