Online Vigil for Losses of the Pandemic

Wednesday, September 28 at 7:00 PM – via zoom

6.5 million deaths have been recorded worldwide since the start of the global pandemic in March 2020. This staggering figure reflects direct loss of life from COVID 19. And there is so much more to grieve. In varying ways we’ve all been impacted by pandemic loss. Loss of family members, friends, colleagues. Loss of social connections. A health care system battered, whose workers courageously continue to serve. The hard truths revealing our societal failure to ensure ethical care of our elder people, and the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on the lives of the most vulnerable among us; disabled people, racialized communities, and economically disenfranchised folx.

On Sept. 28, in solidarity we will mourn and honour these losses and hold hope for our uncertain future with ritual, readings and music. In advance, please have a symbol available for the ritual of loss, such as a candle, stones and water bowl, or beads and the like.
