We give you thanks God, for you are good, and your mercy is endless. Grant that we may walk the road your Son walked so that through his suffering we may share also in his resurrection.
Dr. Rehana Jan came to Camilla Hall and offered great insights on the religion of Islam. In order to join all Muslims and Christians in prayer, the Sisters at Camilla Hall shared their grief with the Muslim Community within Evening Prayer on March 21.
Evening Prayer concluded with the following:
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, God of Christians, Muslims and Jews, be with us in this time of profound sorrow and grief. May your healing presence bring comfort and peace to all who have died in the recent mosque shootings, to the injured, to their families and friends, to the Muslim community through the world. We unite our hearts and prayers with theirs. We ask that the way of peace may somehow find its way into our broken, troubled world -- with your help, you who are the Merciful, the Compassionate, and Father of us all. Amen.
On February 19th the Sisters gathered in the 2nd Floor Lounge for a presentation on Dorothy Day, "A Woman for All Days".
