Vigil for Haiti planned
Posted January 13, 2010; 06:13 p.m.
A nondenominational gathering in support of the people of Haiti and those who are suffering in the wake of the catastrophic earthquake is planned for 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, in the Princeton University Chapel.
The gathering will include prayers, silence, spoken reflections, a choral anthem and the lighting of candles. It is sponsored by the University's Office of Religious Life and will be led by the deans of religious life, the Chapel Choir and the Catholic chaplain.
The vigil is open to all.
Although no currently enrolled Princeton students appear to have been in Haiti during the earthquake, a number of University employees have family members who live in the country and are affected. The Office of Human Resources is communicating with employees about services and benefits available, including emergency confidential counseling. More information is available on the human resources website or by calling the office at (609) 258-3300 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
