A prayer for MLK Day

mlkprayerLord God, You led your chosen people from slavery in Egypt to the freedom of the Promised Land.
We ask you to lead us, and our school community, from any enslavement to hatred, ignorance, fear, racism, injustice or anything else that prevents us from being the community of love and respect that you want us to be.
We remember with gratitude today the witness of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and we ask that we have the courage and determination to follow his example in battling injustice and living the Gospel of love.
Fill us with your spirit: where our human community is divided by racism, torn by repression, saddened by fear and ignorance, may we give ourselves to your work of healing.
Grant all this through Christ our Lord,
(Adapted from a prayer from the University of Notre Dame)

As noted in the Royals Back Together plan, the University is carefully monitoring the spread of the virus in our surrounding community and adapting campus health and safety requirements accordingly.  Given that Lackawanna and neighboring counties continue to experience substantial or high spread of the virus, the University is implementing several safety requirements. One of the requirements is that the campus is essentially closed right now to the general public.

Therefore, attendance at Mass, both weekday and Sundays, as well as the Friday Jum'ah service in the Campus Mosque, will be limited to members of The University of Scranton community and access will be by Royal Card only.  As is required in all indoor spaces on campus, masks are required for all in attendance. These provisions will remain in place at least through January 3, at which time the University will announce any continuation or change.  We will announce the public status on our Campus Ministries website and social media platforms. We thank you for your continued patience. Let us keep praying for one another and for an end to the pandemic.

Vision of Campus Ministries

Campus Ministries serves the mission of The University of Scranton by making visible and effective our Roman Catholic and Jesuit identity with a spirit of inclusivity of all religious traditions. Inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the charism of St. Ignatius Loyola, we offer students opportunities to become women and men for and with others. These opportunities include ways for students to explore their relationship with God, express their faith in reflective service, work toward the transformation of unjust societal structures, and be immersed in cultures and experiences in developing countries of our world.
