BECOMING EVEN MORE ISOLATED: Mass Incarceration during Covid-19

 

The Color of COVID

Watch a recording of the livestream sponsored by Bellarmine and the Xavier Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice. Featuring moderator Dr. Adam Clark and panelists Rev. Damon Lynch, Iris Roley, and Rev. Nelson Pierce, this conversation addresses the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on the African American population. 

NETWORK Activism 

In order to move Congress to positive action for those most affected by Covid-19, NETWORK Lobby is collecting student stories about the impacts of the pandemic -- whether you lost your job, moved out of campus housing, or struggle to find adequate medical care.

Ignatian Solidarity Network
Our friends at ISN are putting together great justice related resources and remote programs. Check out upcoming virtual events and advocacy resources. If you like what you see, be on the lookout for ISN's Teach-In for Justice, hapening virtually this year from October 19-26th. Contact Spencer Liechty with questions and for more information.  

Ongoing and Always Available

Virtual Prayer Book
Started by the 10 pm Mass committee, this prayer book is a place for the whole Xavier community--students, faculty, staff, and alumni--to submit prayer requests and prayer for each other. All submissions will be anonymous and will be offered up to God in prayer by multiple groups of many faiths on campus.
Speak with our Chaplain Staff 

Our chaplains are available. This is a season of grief and trauma, of processing, of questions without answers that are hard to ask. Pastoral care in the CFJ is about accompaniment--we won’t answer your questions, but will walk with you. We seek to help you create and hold space, to be a non-anxious presence on your journey. We come from a variety of faith traditions, and with a variety of identities. We are available on the phone, via zoom, and sometimes even texting. Email Rev. Luke Hansen, SJ (Catholic), Colleen Ryan-Mayrand (Catholic), Rev. Nelson Pierce, Jr. (Protestant), Rev. Abby King-Kaiser (Protestant), Rabbi Jennifer Lewis (Jewish) and Tala Ali (Muslim). Reach out to us by email and remember that they entire CFJ staff is here to support you.
