In Memoriam Update

Historically, Xavier’s In Memoriam has been featured in our Connections magazine.  In a conscious effort to go green and maintain Xavier’s STEAM goals, In Memoriam is now available online. Similarly, in order to maintain continuity as well as keep our community informed the featured list will be updated quarterly (January, April, July, and October). As the feature list is updated the prior will be archived as a viewable PDF available at all times. In Memoriam features prior to May 2017 are available through our Office of Alumnae Relations and are physically archived on campus in the Xavier Archive. 

Help us keep our featured lists updated and accurate by completing the prayer card below.

Special Intentions

The Xavier Community accepts prayer requests to express sympathy or special intentions. The Xavier Prayer Ministry is committed to offering prayer support for anyone in the Xavier community who has a medical or personal concern. Prayer requests received will be shared by email with the community; we in turn pray for the specific intention. Please contact Stacy Berghoff with your requests and confirm the family is aware and requests our prayers. Please send your requests to: stacyberghoff@me.com
Almighty and everliving God, we entrust our loved ones into your hands. Eternal rest grant onto them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon them.
