The following is a message from Father Dobbin, OSA, the University
President. The e-mail was sent on Tuesday evening in response to the
tragic events that occurred earlier that day. Please know that
Villanova University has taken steps to help provide support and
counseling to students, faculty, and staff members. On Tuesday we held
three Liturgies during the day and a Prayer Service in the evening.
Each service was filled to capacity with students, staff and faculty
coming together to pray. Parents are also an important part of the
Villanova Community, and we encourage all of you to take advantage of
the support services available to you and your family.

The entire Villanova community is deeply saddened by the tragic events
that occurred in New York City and Washington, D.C. today. Our
tradition as an Augustinian university has always been one of joining
together as a community to comfort one another and provide solace and
counsel to those whose hearts have been touched by tragedy.

We hope that as an integral member of the Villanova community you will
be able to share your time to meet with others in support groups and
liturgies. Our counseling staff and members of the campus ministry have
made themselves available to faculty, staff and students.

Support groups will meet at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday evening in Corr Chapel and
at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday also in Corr Chapel.

Residence Life has requested that all Residence Advisors be available to
students in their residence halls Tuesday evening. Villanova’s Office
of Student Life, Public Safety and Public Relations also will be on call
Tuesday evening to answer queries from parents and the media.

At this time classes will be in session on Wednesday; this offers an
opportunity for faculty members to discuss with students the profound
effects of today’s events.

We hope that you will join together at this tragic time in prayer,
support and reflection.
