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.
Thursday, April 4, 12:30-2pm: Interfaith Lunch & Learn: Faith Perspectives on Refugee Issues & Policy @ Adele’s: Join the Interfaith community for a free lunch and panel discussion on refugee issues. We will have policy experts and guest speakers from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and other refugee resettlement organizations.
Join us for our L3 weekly lunch discussion tomorrow, Wednesday February 27. Our theme for this Spring 2019 semester is Creating Unity in an Age of Polarization!
Our topic for tomorrow will be intellectual humility.
Here is an article that we will be using to guide our conversation. Some questions to reflect on are; How does intellectual humility ease the tension that polarization perpetuates? Why does our political discourse view humility as a weakness or evidence of no confidence/conviction?
We look forward to seeing you this week. Please share with your friends!
