Lasell College held a Service of Concern for Japan on Tuesday, March 22nd, in Yamawaki Auditorium. Several members of the Lasell community attended the service which included simple readings, prayers and a moment of silence led by Reverend Thomas P. Sullivan, Director of the College's Center for Spiritual Life.

The service honored victims and survivors of Japan's recent earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis. The earthquake, which registered 8.9 on the Richter Scale, struck Japan on March 11 and caused a destructive tsunami that engulfed entire towns and villages on the coast. The tsunami also affected nearby nuclear power plants leaving the country's citizens fearful of radiation exposure.

Included in the service were prayers from the Shinto and Buddist traditions, poetry readings and a story of survival, days after the earthquake and tsunami.
