In August 2014, a collaborative community art project was launched in Ferguson, Missouri in an effort to create a hopeful and safe place for people to come together in the spirit of unity, connection, and compassion.
Members from the Ferguson community and anyone supporting this creative cause have been invited to contribute a ribbon with hopeful messages that will help provide support and strength. Ribbons of HOPE, as seen in the video below are displayed at different locations throughout Ferguson to visually communicate this expression of support:

Ursuline College continues tradition by hosting a beam signing ceremony for the new Center for Creative and Healing Arts. Ursuline is also constructing an athletic center on campus. The construction of the two buildings is the College’s largest project in over 40 years.
The Center for the Creative and Healing Arts and Sciences will house the Art Therapy and Counseling department and The Breen School of Nursing’s undergraduate and graduate programs. The building is comprised of 22,000 square feet of classrooms, labs and conference and meeting space equipped with the latest technologies in education.
Every year sophomore nursing students take part in a traditional ceremony called the Blessing of the Hands. This blessing ceremony is a beautiful experience and valuable to students as they embark on their first clinical rotations. As a daughter of an Ursuline alumna, my mother, a registered nurse has learned through this experience to value the importance of empathy, compassion, strength and responsibility and has been guided by God to use her hands to heal those that suffer. Ursuline College, the only school in the region that holds this ceremony, wants this unique tradition to “touch the heart through the hands”. Through this ceremony, students will learn the importance of compassion and care toward patients and reflect on their upcoming responsibilities.
