In light of George Floyd’s death, University President Fr. John Jenkins invited members of the Notre Dame community to gather at the Hesburgh Library Quad to “pray for unity and walk for justice” Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.
“We will pray for George Floyd, his family and friends and for a recommitment to defend the dignity of every human life, particularly the lives of our black brothers and sisters,” Jenkins said in the email announcement.
Jenkins will deliver words of reflection, a reading and opening and closing prayers.
“Participants can then process to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, where they will be invited to pray in memory of those who have lost their lives and for peace and justice for all,” the email said.
Participants are expected to maintain social distancing procedures in the interest of health and safety, and a low number of masks will be provided for those who do not have one.
The service will be live streamed here.
