5:00 to 6:00 pm in Hoversten Chapel

On Saturday, October 14, a truck packed with explosives detonated in the heart of Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, killing at least 300 people and seriously injuring hundreds more. It is one of the most lethal terrorist attacks that has happened anywhere in the world for many years. This tragedy touches many Minnesota families, including Augsburg students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have lost loved ones in the blast.

In response to this violence, Campus Ministry and the Muslim Student Association offer a space for reflection and healing. All are invited to attend on Tuesday afternoon at 5:00pm for prayer and Somali tea.

Also, Jummah (Friday Prayer) will be extended to include prayers for Mogadishu. It will be from 1:30 to 2:30pm in Hoversten Chapel.
