Community Prayer Vigil Oct. 4

Dear Regis Community:

Due to the sad news of a student's passing tonight and the death of another student over the weekend who was studying overseas, all classes will be canceled for tomorrow so that we can gather and mourn these terrible losses.

Please come together as a community in prayer for a vigil at 1 p.m. in the St. Francis Regis Chapel.

The chapel will be open all day tomorrow for those who wish to pray and seek support and comfort.

Tomorrow's faculty-staff Town Hall will also be rescheduled.

"Christ Jesus, when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us the sense of Your presence, Your love, and Your strength. Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power, so that nothing may frighten or worry us, for, living close to You, we shall see Your hand, Your purpose, Your will through all things. Amen."

-St. Ignatius
