The Ignatian Solidarity Network invites you to join A Virtual Prayer Vigil for Lamentation and Racial Justice on the one month anniversary of the killing of George Floyd on Thursday, June 25 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET. You may RSVP below to receive a reminder e-mail.
The virtual vigil will be an opportunity for each of us, members of the Ignatian family, to gather for shared prayer across our network to lament and commemorate the Black lives that have been lost due to police brutality and white supremacy in the United States.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, Pope Francis reminded us that “We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.” With this in mind, during the prayer vigil, anonymous lamentations from across the network will be shared to illuminate the many emotions people are feeling in this present moment.
We invite you to use this form to share a lamentation. Several of the lamentations submitted will be shared during the prayer service, and there will be a moment in which we silently uplift all of the stories that were submitted but not read out loud.
The prayer vigil will be broadcast on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
