Peace Pole’ Prayer Gathering in response to bombing in Boston, Massachusetts – USA

April 18, 2013

In the wake of the events in Boston on Monday, the Notre Dame de Namur University campus ministry invited the public to attend a gathering at the campus’ Peace Pole for prayer and signing of cards to be sent to NDNU’s sister school in Boston.

In response to the events that happened in Boston on Monday, people gathered at 12:05 p.m. at the Peace Pole outside of the Chapel. Prayers were offered for those who were killed or injured and prayers for peace and an end to violence. This was an ecumenical prayer time, meaning that prayers from all faith and spiritual traditions are welcome.
