Red Knights Gather for Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Prayer Service
On November 22, Red Knights gathered in-person and virtually for BSM’s annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Prayer Service in the Great Hall. Father Tim Wozniak was accompanied by guests Rabbi Avi Olitzky (virtual), Tamim Saidi, and Reverend Elaine Barber, who shared heartfelt words of peace and light with our students, faculty, and staff.
Musical offerings were sung by BSM’s choir and the Goldberg family around themes of peace and gratitude.
Campus Minister Mike Jeremiah reflected on the significance of this service, “As we approach the day of Thanksgiving, it’s only right that as a community of faith, as family, we gather together in prayer...a time to give thanks for the many blessings that fill our lives; a time to realize more fully the connection that exists between all people, our common call as children of God.
The aim of this service is to be a true sign of the unity we share as the family of God, reminding us that we are called to be instruments of peace in a world so much in need; reminding us that we are called to love our neighbor, every single person we encounter. We truly are children of God, brothers and sisters.”
