Join UCM & L3 for the following programs:

Tuesday, April 2 @ 7:30pm: Kick-Off & Prayer Vigil for Refugees:Join us in the Memorial Chapel Garden of Reflection and Remembrance for Interfaith prayers and reflections on the plight of refugees in the world. We will also discuss the purpose and practice of fasting and how it is often observed in diverse religious practices.
Wednesday, April 3: DAY OF FASTING: Join the Interfaith community in fasting, at whatever personal level you may, to stand in solidarity with refugees and displaced peoples across the world. Break the Fast on Wednesday night with friends and community members. You may join the Catholic Student Center for their dinner and mass at 5:30pm. We ask that you take note of the money you may have saved on meals from fasting, so that you can donate this to organizations that serve refugees around the world. We will be tweeting donation links all day.
