Interfaith clergy leaders and others from around the state will hold a memorial service to honor the lives of the 10,000 Mississippi residents who have died since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The prayers and tolling of the bells will be a dramatic way to highlight these tragic losses, and give a voice to the grief felt by all who loved and knew those who have died, and remind us that there will be more to come.

All are welcome to attend.
