Diocesan Memorial Wall

A holy place in virtual space for mourning and memory.

This is a place to gather, grieve, reflect and honor the lives of those who have died during the time of the Pandemic, whether or not it was due to the virus. Because we have been isolated, and unable to be with each other to provide comfort, care and support during this time, we offer this site as an ongoing memorial, gathering the names of the dead so that they are not forgotten. Here, we who mourn can cast our tears into God’s almighty and loving hands, whose own tears join ours, bringing us consolation, peace and hope.

"Lament & Hope" by Colleen Hintz, 2020

Lament & Hope by Colleen Hintz, used with permission
This image is that of Father/Mother God looking at their own hands – hands that hold those who are dying, and those who are caring, and those who are working to keep us all fed, and those in detention, and so many more. The tears fall from his/her eyes and become part of the waters of life and the waters of death that surround us all right now. Within the waters, is light – the hope of what can be on the other side of this pandemic. As you look at the image, I invite you to see what you see through the lens of your own experiences, both before and within this pandemic. I hear strands of the hymn On Eagles Wings; "And hold you in the palm of God's hands," as Mother/Father God holds the tears that are falling from God's own eyes – and ours – in the palm of her/his hands. I see the hands held in light – the light that surrounds the God image and cascades throughout the entire piece reminding us we are held in the light and love of God supported by the hands of those keeping us all safe – the doctors and nurses, custodians and clerks, pharmacists and respiratory therapists, grocery store workers and truck drivers, migrant farm workers and dairy producers, nursing home staffs and clergy and so many more all holding us in their light and love despite their own tears.
