L3 will be meeting on Wednesday 10/5 at 5pm, Juan Ramon Jimenez Room, Stamp Student Union. Take a break from your schedule and dive into reflection and important dialogue. All are welcome! Pizza will be provided!  We will be discussing: “how is faith involved in our academic lives?”

Starting 10/9 Soul Care Sundays will be every second Sunday of the month at 3pm in the Memorial Chapel Lounge.

Come explore and share in some of our favorite leisure activities while we reimagine how we can connect our faith to these activities! This month, we’ll explore the practices of meditative walking on the campus labyrinth as well as meditative “breath prayers”. Let’s explore together!

5/5 UMD Annual Memorial Celebration, 2 pm, Memorial Chapel, Remembering the Lives of Students, Faculty, Emeriti Faculty & Staff

We mourn the lives lost and feel deeply that all Terrapins should be honored for their contributions to our campus. The university’s annual Memorial Celebration brings our community together to remember the lives of Maryland students, faculty, emeriti faculty, and staff who passed during the past year. This celebration allows us to remember recent losses together as a community. This year’s second annual Memorial Celebration is symbolic of what it means to be part of the Terrapin family, and we encourage all members of our community to join us in person at the Memorial Chapel or through the live stream. This celebration will honor current students, staff, faculty, and emeriti faculty who passed away from April 2021 through April 2022 while enrolled at or working for the university. A list of names of those being recognized may be found on the Memorial Celebration website. The event will be also be live-streamed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS2Agjbm2p8
