Jesuit Schools Host the MSA Shoe!
In keeping with the Jesuit philosophy to seek justice always and to advocate for those persons who are most vulnerable, the Jesuit schools unite with other institutions across the United States to help raise awareness about Multiple System Atrophy by hosting the MSA Shoe. As Ignatian companions, we honor too, those that have died due to MSA and we pray for them and their families.
Here are a few snapshots of the MSA Shoe’s visits to Jesuit sponsored institutions in the United States in the recent past:
Georgetown graduate students currently working on new MSA related research host the MSA Shoe in their lab at Georgetown’s School of Medicine.
The Shoe stops for a rest in front of Healy Hall at Georgetown University.
The Jesuits prayed for all those with MSA…
The MSA Shoe stops to honor all those graduates of Jesuit schools that have succumbed to Multiple System Atrophy (RIP).
At home with everyone who cares about those who suffer from Multiple System Atrophy – Georgetown research students.
Oops, let’s not stay here too long – ACID!
Stopped to pray outside Healy Hall at Georgetown University. The building was named for Patrick John Healy, S.J., the first African- American to become a Jesuit priest and the president of Georgetown following the American Civil War. Father Healy, please intercede for all those who suffer from MSA!
Oh, look what we have here!
