Notre Dame College is starting the new year with a new tradition: mid-week prayer sessions.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to the College’s Christ the King Chapel in the Administration Building on the Notre Dame campus to share some sacred time together each Wednesday at noon. Masks will be worn and social distancing will be observed. The gatherings will begin on Wednesday, January 13, and are expected to continue throughout the spring semester.
“One thing that has become evident over this past year is that, in a confusing and difficult time such as this, we need to be in prayer,” said Ted Steiner, M.A., chief mission officer and director of campus ministry.
The prayer time, led by Notre Dame’s campus ministry, will include a short reading and reflection, silence and a chance to share petition requests. Members of the College community unable to join in person can share their prayer intentions online. Requests will be read at the gathering and lifted up by all in attendance.
Prayer requests also will be shared with the Sisters of Notre Dame in Chardon, Ohio, who pray for the College and its students, faculty and staff on a regular basis.
All prayer intentions are welcome, whether for personal needs or requests for the Notre Dame community.
Names are not required to request prayer. The College’s intention form is available online.
