Barry University Celebrates Peace Month

Barry University’s mission statement calls us to “foster peace and non-violence.”  For the third consecutive year, Barry celebrates Peace Month as a collaborative effort from many University departments. This annual celebration began with the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Wednesday, September 4th. It also included a variety of peace related activities throughout the month of September, including the 9-11 Memorial Project at Amelia Earhart Park, an Interfaith Prayer Service at the Peace Pole, a photo slideshow of the Fanjeaux summer program, a Deliberative Dialogue on A Right to Bear Arms:  Gun Rights and Gun Control, and a Mission Brown Bag Lunch Series on the Catholic Higher Education using “Mission and Core Commitments:  A Commentary.” 

In addition, a Peace-In was held that highlighted a series of workshops and commenced with a Carnival for Peace outside of the Cor Jesu Chapel.  Students were engaged in the month of activities as well.  Erica Nanoo, a Barry University nursing student and resident assistant, spearheaded a Tibetan peace flag project based on the prayer flags of Tibet within the resident halls.  Nanoo said the program was originally conceived during RA training with a couple other RA’s.  “The project was started because of Peace Month here at Barry, and it was a just a fun way to get students aware and active in the month’s events,” she said.
