On June 11, Jennings residents and staff came together in the Chapel for a prayer service to encourage unity and stand against racism. Residents and staff members took part as others (physically distanced) prayed and sang in unity. We opened by singing “Wade in the Water,” prayed together and read scripture verses, and closed by singing “We Shall Overcome.”

Residents and staff members chose pins that inspire unity and remind us that Jennings’ values of respect and community reject racism. Chief Mission Leader Sister Valerie Sweeney thanked participants and said, “Let’s continue to celebrate our unity together here at Jennings and in our nation. Whenever we see on the news anything about the need for racial equality, let’s lift that up as a continuation of this prayer service.”
