There are 3 comments on Marsh Chapel Adjusts Its Ministry in Response to Coronavirus

  1. Thank you Dean Hill for continuing to make this vital weekly worship service available including the uplifting music while also maintaining social distancing. Your commitment and that of the 8 choral scholars is greatly appreciated. May you all be safe in your travels to and from March Chapel. Thanks again.

    Pray as though everything depends upon God. Work as though everything depends upon you. – St. Augustine

  2. I want to send my profound thanks to Dean Hill, and to the entourage of lectors and musicians, for their 11:00 a.m. Sunday Morning Service. I never miss a Sunday broadcast, and I always come away deeply moved and inspired by these presentations. I also know many (if not most) of the prayers by heart, having served as an acolyte in grade school, and later as an active member of the Cardinal John Henry Newman Catholic Center at UMass-Amherst. I view our current “Trial By Fire” viral ordeal as a test of our faith, our courage, and our resolve to do everything in our power to help others in need. Hang in there. “This too shall pass”.

  3. The “Trump trauma of 2016”, I love it when “religious leaders”get involved in politics and then they wonder why religion is slowly fading away never to return to the “good old days”

    People I know who were regulars and now attend , Christmas and Easter ,weather permitting
    have dropped out for many reasons,
