Campus Vigil and Gathering


Tuesday, March 26, 2019


5:00 pm


Outdoor Space Library Lawn

In response to the heart-breaking shootings this past week in Christchurch, New Zealand, the campus community is invited and encouraged to attend a candlelight Campus Vigil at 5:00pm on the Library Lawn. In event of rain, we will gather instead at the chapel portico, just outside the main chapel doors.

Our gathering is a time to stand together as a campus community in our collective grief and in our solidarity against this hate-based act of violence. The gathering will include brief reflections and readings from members of our community, a memorial reading of the names of those who were killed, and a candle-lit moment of silence.

Sponsored by the ALANA Center, the Office of International Students, the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life and Contemplative Practices, and the Office of Student Growth and Engagement.

Again, all are welcome.
