Greetings from The Rt. Rev. Philip, the National Chaplain

Lent begins with the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday and with a reminder of our mortality. This year we need no reminder of our mortality. Over 465,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, and every night when we click on the news, we learn of more deaths, more hospitalizations, and more variants of the coronavirus. Probably everyone has at least one friend or family member who has died from COVID-19 and its complications.
