The Mercy Center for Spiritual Life values the richness that
diverse religious traditions bring to our campus community and promotes events
and programs that highlight and celebrate this diversity.
Annual events and
programs include: The Viva Mercy! Celebration, which honors members of the
Salve Regina community who live the virtue of mercy; the Festival of Lights, which
gives voice to the many ways that our traditions pray for peace; and "Experiencing
Exodus Together," a Seder in the Jewish tradition that encourages us to think
about the liberating power of God in our lives.
Prayer services in the Taize tradition are supported by meditative song,
scripture readings and restful silence. What touches young people in Taize is
the expression of faith through simple action and an invitation to a search
that draws them onwards beyond themselves.
