University to Host Prayer Vigil, Encourages Students to Help

The university has announced that the Memorial Chapel will be holding a prayer service for the victims of Hurricane Katrina on Sunday, September 4 at 9:30 pm.

The prayer service will be "in the Christian tradition," as it is being sponsored by the Episcopal/Anglican Campus Ministry.

We wonder how long it will remain slated "in the Christian tradition." Let's just hope people don't protest this show of spirituality on campus.

In an e-mail to members of the university community, Provost William Destler announced that the university is considering several options for fundraising for victims of the hurricane.

The administration has also started enrolling Maryland residents who had been attending schools in the flooded areas of Louisiana.

"I hope that all of you will find a way to contribute to those affected
by this natural disaster," Destler said. He added that the university's Web site offers links to several organizations that are accepting donations to help in the recovery efforts.

    Superstition is belief without reason. Superstition is part of religions. Superstition is living without knowing.
