Ignatian Prayer Vigil for Lamentation and Racial Justice


The Office of Campus Ministry invites you to join us and the Ignatian Solidarity Network for a virtual Ignatian Prayer Vigil for Lamentation and Racial Justice on the one month anniversary of the killing of George Floyd tonight, Thursday, June 25 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET.

The vigil will be an opportunity for each of us, as members of the Ignatian family, to gather for shared prayer across our network, and to lament and commemorate the black lives that have been lost due to police brutality and white supremacy in the United States. You can RSVP here to let us know you plan to participate.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, Pope Francis reminded us that “we cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.” With this in mind, during the prayer vigil, anonymous lamentations from across the network will be shared to illuminate the many emotions people are feeling in this present moment. The ISN invites you to use this form to share a lamentation. Several submissions will be shared during the prayer service, and we will silently uplift all of the stories that were submitted but not read out loud.
