MEMORIAL FOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED FROM COVID-19
On January 19, 2021, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church joined President-Elect Joseph Biden and churches across the country in a memorial to the more than 400,000 U.S. citizens who have perished over the past year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. While President-Elect Biden was leading a memorial service on the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in Washington D.C. as part of his inaugural activities, he asked congregations across the country to join in the memorial by tolling their church bells forty times at 5:30 p.m. in remembrance and celebration of those who have passed and their families who now mourn. St. Paul’s participated in the effort (hear attached recording) while members of the congregation paused in their homes in a collective moment of silence.
