Cardinal Spellman High School

In June of 2020 Cardinal Spellman hosted a Vigil of Prayer for Healing and Racial Harmony.

Recent events had reminded all of us that the important movement for racial equality and harmony is far from complete in this country.

Students, parents, faculty, alumni and friends of Spellman were invited to join us virtually for a prayer service held in our school's chapel. Students led this special event under the leadership of school advisors. The invitation read: Please join us as we stand against racial injustice by lifting our hearts and voices in support of our brothers and sisters, alumni, and students in a vigil for Healing and Racial Harmony today at 8:30 am (A Moment of Silence for all who have lost their lives to racial hatred at 8:46) in honor of George Floyd.
