Pope Francis has proclaimed Friday, February 23 a Day of Prayer and Fasting for peace in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

200 Assumptionists serve in the DRC in schools, parishes, hospitals, orphanages, job training centers and formation communities. Three of these Assumptionists were kidnapped in 2012 and have not been heard from since, and one Assumptionist priest was assassinated for his efforts on behalf of peace and justice in the DRC in 2016.

Several opportunities will be offered on campus on February 23 to call attention to the situation in the DRC and to pray for peace there:

*Mass at 12:00 and 5:00 PM, Chapel

*Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament 8:30 AM-12:00 PM and 12:30-3:30 PM, Chapel

*Stations of the Cross at 3:30 PM, Chapel

*DRC Info Table by CRS Social Justice Ambassadors during lunch hours, Taylor Dining Hall.

If you would like to sign up for a 30 minute block of time for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on February 23, please go to https://doodle.com/poll/czuhitc9znkv3mbn or sign up on the poster at the back of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit.

Thank you,
