Mount St. Mary’s University is inviting all students, faculty, staff and those in the community to join in a day of prayer and fasting for world peace on the vigil of the birthday of Mary, Queen of Peace, the University announced.
Pope Francis has called for September 7 to be a day to pray for “peace in Syria, in the entire Mideast region, and throughout the whole world,” according to The Vatican Today.
Mount St. Mary’s is offering opportunities for Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Rosary, and a procession of the Eucharist to the Grotto Altar in the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes on the University campus.
Mount St. Mary’s University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
