As Black History Month concludes, Seton Hall's Office of Campus Ministry invites the whole Seton Hall community to Share your Prayer with and for the Black community in a special way during this last week of the month.
During this month of February, we as a campus have celebrated the many contributions of Black Americans in our nation, acknowledged the wounds of past and present racism, and looked towards a future of greater justice and flourishing together. As Black History month concludes, we lift up our voices to God on behalf of our Black brothers and sisters in the Seton Hall community and beyond. The Mother Seton side chapel of the University Chapel has been transformed into a special space to honor these prayers and petitions. All are welcome to participate in this Share you Prayer initiative, co-sponsored by MLKSA and the Division of Volunteer Efforts, which will be open to all members of the community from February 22 through February 28th.
The in-person chapel space dedicated to Share your Prayer is complemented by an online submission component. Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the University are invited to submit petitions here, which will be highlighted online and added to the physical space by a team of student volunteers.
Our foundress Mother Seton once said, "We know certainly that our God … gives us every grace, every abundant grace; and though we are so weak of ourselves, this grace is able to carry us through every obstacle and difficulty." As a Catholic institution of higher education, join us in coming together to invite and implore the grace of God to be with us as we celebrate Black Americans and as we mourn the wounds caused by division and racism. Let us pray this week and beyond for God's grace be with us to inspire and guide as we work to form our students and communities in principles of compassion, justice, and love of neighbor. All are welcome.
