A center for spiritual strengthening… #ThankfulThursday: Trish & Dan Bell Interfaith Chapel at FIU

We hope our exciting new #ThankfulThursday reflection finds you well.

Yesterday, Marile and I had the distinct honor and pleasure of participating in the Trish & Dan Bell Chapel groundbreaking ceremony at FIU.

Please join us in celebrating the generosity, kindness and compassion of our dear friends Trish & Dan Bell, Miami’s Pioneering Philanthropists.

Once again, Trish & Dan have set a new standard for giving with their transformative donation to help FIU build an inter-faith chapel. This sacred space for spiritual strengthening, renewal and understanding, will provide a sanctuary for the expression of diverse faiths by FIU’s young women and men.

Marile & I share with Trish & Dan the firm belief — that a “strong spiritual foundation” — is the key to living a joyous, meaningful and transcendent life.

“How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!”

These words of Psalm 84, express our prayer today as we celebrate the blessings of the Trish & Dan Bell Chapel — a sacred place of worship and prayer, where the Lord indeed will dwell.

We also pray that for many years to come, all who pray at the Trish & Dan Bell Chapelworship in spirit and in truth, and learn from His wisdom and love!

May the Trish & Dan Bell Chapel and Tower be the heart, and center of the FIU community, from where His graces will abound and be poured forth upon the entire FIU family!

Finally, may Trish & Dan and the entire Bell Family be blessed and remembered for humbly and passionately sharing their time, talent, and treasures to improve the lives of so many in our community. Amen!

As always, thank you for taking the time to reflect with us.

Know we cherish your friendship and continued support.

Warmest personal regards,

Marile & Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq.

Volunteers, Donors & Proud FIU Panther Parents
