Avila University Walks for Peace

Posted by Ryan Hall

From Jean Buchanan

On September 21, organizers at Avila University in Kansas City, MO held a peace walk.   It was a really lovely and touching service.  As the NCR article below describes, we stopped at spots on campus where Dave Armstrong read prayers and made remarks that were perfect for the occasion and so mindful of the diverse group gathered there.  The three tragic events that touched the Avila community personally were treated with sensitivity and thoughtfulness.  It was much more than just a walk.  It is a privilege and an honor to be associated with this institution.

The National Catholic Reporter wrote a brief article on the event here:
