Blessing of the Holy Spirit

It is a St. John’s University tradition each September to ask for God’s blessing on our community, that the Holy Spirit may guide us throughout the year. Because we cannot gather together in person, we come together virtually to pray for help and guidance.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit give us the grace and strength to move forward and live out our mission as St. John’s University. As we encounter difficulties, as well as new possibilities, may we be open to God’s Word in our hearts. May the guidance of the Spirit help each of us to use our unique gifts to work for a stronger University and a better world.
