CHICAGO, IL (February 15, 2008) - Our hearts go out to the entire Northern Illinois University community and especially to those families directly affected by injury and loss of life. We are praying for comfort for those who grieve and are in need of healing, both physical and emotional, as well as for those who will struggle to deal with the aftermath of such a tragic event.

The University Ministries office at North Park University is opening its doors at 1 p.m. on Friday, February 15, to anyone who wishes to join together in prayer for those connected to NIU and affected by this tragedy. University Ministries is located in the basement of Sohlberg Hall, and the prayer time will take place in their conference room.
