Lynese Garcia provides us with this weeks Evensong reflection about Domestic violence. Her reflection is in collaboration with STOP in the Name of Love, a domestic violence awareness event in the Chapel on November 5th. Come out to the chapel at 5:00 on Wednesday November 5th for an an evening of Empowerment through Education, Testimony, Spoken Word and Unity. Lynese is a co-coordinator for the Women’s Relationship Awareness Program (WRAP), and a part of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) committee here on campus.
“Violence never equates to love; neither party should be putting their hands on the other. God will always be there to protect and love you, you just have to pursue God, and in loving him, you can learn to love yourself more. It’s time to take your power back, and never let it be taken again, use your voice, and prayer, your most valuable tools, be empowered, and stay in power. ”

Thank you to all who came out to our opening mass on the quad. It was a big success. Also, thank you to all of the students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the La Salle family that submitted intentions to be remembered. Your intentions were remembered during the celebration and will be kept in prayer throughout the year.

The goal of University Ministry and Service at La Salle University is to further the Catholic Identity and Lasallian mission of the University. UMAS promotes the core Lasallian values of faith, service, and community through our programs and our daily actions. We follow the example of St John Baptist de La Salle by serving those in need as well as working to educate ourselves and others about social injustices. We encourage and support the dialogue between faith and reason, interreligious dialogue, and provide opportunities for worship, study, retreat, community service, justice action, student leadership, and spiritual direction. Through an atmosphere of fellowship and outreach, UMAS strives to meet individual students where they are, introduce them to a life of service, and help students become their best selves.
