    'Giving Voice to the Silenced' University Vigil

    April 27, 2021

    The University of Scranton community is invited to gather at an all faiths prayer vigil for reflection and prayer regarding recent deaths that underscore the tragic consequences of systemic racism and oppression faced by Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ (especially transgender) persons, women, and others who are marginalized in our country, especially on the basis of race.

    We encourage you to submit the names of persons you would like to honor by visiting this form.

    The vigil program will be held on the Dionne Green, Tuesday, May 4 (rain date May 5) and will consist of an opening prayer at 4:00 p.m. a reading of the submitted names at 7:30 p.m. and a closing prayer at 9:00 p.m. Other activities and support and resources will be available during the vigil. Masks and social distancing will be required.

    This University of Scranton program is being offered by the Office of Equity & Diversity, Campus Ministries, and the Cross Cultural Centers. For more information, please contact Dr. Helen Wolf at, or call (570) 941-7419.
