Remaining Home in Faith: An Interfaith Memorial Service

HRC is hosting a virtual interfaith memorial service in tribute to the lives lost due to COVID-19.

In tribute to the lives lost, and anticipated loss of life, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HRC is virtually hosting Remaining Home in Faith: An Interfaith Memorial Service on Friday, April 10 at 12:00 p.m. EDT.

Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, hundreds of thousands of people have contracted the virus, and every community has been affected. Marginalized communities — including the LGBTQ community, Black communities and those at the intersection of these identities — are facing unique challenges due to economic and health care disparities. As we mark two of the most important holidays in two major religions, Holy Week/Easter in Western Christianity and Passover in Judaism, many people are unable to celebrate with their families and friends, and may even be mourning the loss of friends and family members while in isolation. HRC's interfaith memorial service will bring the LGBTQ and faith communities together virtually at a time when many may feel alone.
