Our Lasallian Catholic heritage reminds us that we are not alone in these troubling times, that we are always in the holy presence of God, both within us and between us. The Interfaith Service for Hope brought together diverse voices and the spiritual wisdom of many faith leaders to continue to celebrate our moving forward in faith, together!

This first event in our Interfaith Hope Project (#gaels4hope) series, were dedicated to two critical efforts that are serving the immediate needs of Lasallian students locally and globally:

Our Saint Mary’s President’s Emergency Fund has already assisted over 100 of our students, and the #LaSalleCOVID19 campaign is helping students and their families living in the most fragile and precarious situations around the world. Communities where access to virtual education and regular hand-washing are not even an option, and where access to medical support and food are scarce.

HOW CAN YOU BE A WITNESS OF HOPE?

  • Seek out...
    • virtual meditation and prayer resources, like the virtual SMC Interfaith Service for Hope held on Wednesday, May 13th at 1pm on Instagram Live https://www.instagram.com/smcmmc/.  There are many interfaith opportunities available, e-mail Karin McClelland for more information on resources (klm14@stmarys-ca.edu).
  • Participate...
    • in other events that are part of the SMC Interfaith Hope Project in AY 2020-21, like our Interfaith Solidarity Suppers that bring spiritual leaders and activists from a variety of faith traditions.  These are leaders who have actively established interfaith partnerships in order to address issues that matter for our humanity and dignity.  This year we will focus on Interfaith partnerships that are addressing racism.
  • Support...
    • Lasallian students globally who are living in some of the most vulnerable communities in our Lasallian educational network.  #LaSalleCOVID19 International Relief Fund: www.lasalleinternational.org
