The Division of Mission and Ministry will host the 7th Annual DePaul Gathering of Remembrance, an interfaith memorial service in support of all DePaul community members who have lost loved ones over the past year, on Wednesday, Nov. 14. All DePaul community members, their family and friends are welcome to attend as we show support and care for those in our community.  

Culturally and religiously, the month of November is often a time when we remember those who have gone before us and who have made a meaningful impact on our lives. As we face shorter days, the colder months of the year, and the holiday season, this service is an opportunity to gather as a DePaul community and stand together in mutual support and solidarity with our colleagues who have experienced loss over the past year.   

The event will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Cortelyou Commons. It will last approximately 30 minutes with a light reception to follow. Per tradition, the names of our deceased loved ones will be read aloud during the service.  

Please RSVP and/or provide the names​ of those whom you would like to be remembered during the service by following the link below and adding requested information no later than Monday, Nov. 12 at noon.  Please note, anyone is welcome to attend on the day of the service even if they have not responded to the link.
