Alumni Blog: Alumni Day of Prayer 2018

Alumni Day of Prayer

Posted by Seattle University Alumni Association on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 11:31 AM PST

Alumni are invited to join us for our  Alumni Day of Prayer led by Dave Anderson, S.J. and Liz Johnson, ‘78.

This year, we will be reflecting on the theme of "walking in a manner worthy of the vocation to which we are called," which was recently shared in Pope Francis’ address to the Jesuits.

According to Fr. Dave, Alumni Day of Prayer will be an opportunity to continue the long tradition of praying in silence and discussing Pope Francis' recent conversation with the Jesuit community, saying, “Questions will focus around what you find consoling, what challenges you and what helps you grow as you read and reflect on his message which is pertinent to everyone. We will conclude with mass and lunch.” Fr. Dave went on to add that, “This is a great opportunity for us to step outside our normal everyday routines to pray together and discuss at a deeper level. We will also come to know through our prayer and discussion how God might be inviting us to grow as an alumni body as well as explore some ways we can serve together.”

This event is open to all alumni and friends who feel called to attend.
