UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND — The University of Richmond Office of the Chaplaincy is holding a gathering for the campus community to mark the second anniversary of COVID-19.

The event is on March 31 at 5 p.m. at the University Forum, located near Heilman Dining Center. The 30-minute gathering will include poetry, music, and other reflections to honor those lost during the pandemic and reflect on the resilience of the community.

“Many of us have been so intent at keeping our heads above water the last two years, we have not had time to reflect on all that has happened since COVID-19 arrived in March of 2020,” said University Chaplain Craig Kocher. “Hopefully, through words, music, poetry, and simply being together as a community, glimmers of healing and hope may emerge.”
