World Faith: The Interfaith Service Network

From Georgetown University’s The Hoya: At Interfaith Vigil for Japan Disaster, a Call for Unity on Campus and Around the World 16 March , 2011

Over 100 members of the university community gathered for an interfaith vigil held in Healy Circle at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday, as Shinto, Buddhist and Catholic prayers were said to honor the victims and survivors of the crippling earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan Friday.

Executive Director of Campus Ministry Fr. Kevin O’Brien, S.J., presided over the ceremony, which featured remarks from Yuko Shimada (SFS ’13), a Japanese student involved in on-campus relief efforts. Japan Network will be tabling in Red Square or the Leavey Center every day this week to collect donations from students.
