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

4/13 L3: Power of Purpose – Spring Holidays, 12 pm, Pyon Su Room 2108, Stamp Student Union

Hi Everyone, 

We hope that you are doing well. We are looking forward to gathering together Wednesday. We will be meeting in Pyon Su Room 2108 at noon to discuss recent and upcoming spring holidays. 

This month Islam, Judaism, and Christianity are all recognizing important holidays that pertain to their tradition, such as Ramadan, Passover, and Easter respectively. What do these holidays mean to you? What memories do you have associated with them? How do they inform your sense of purpose? Then, of course, we are coming up on Earth Day and different Pagan holidays with the coming of Spring. How do you experience the changing of seasons? We will be discussing all this and more!

Let us know if you are coming, and we will make sure to have a sandwich ready. 

Blessings, 

Chaplain Holly (she/her) ulmer@umd.edu

Rachel, chaplain intern (she/her) koehler@umd.edu

Hope to see you soon. Lunch included.
