Tags: Currents Crux, Faith, Inspiration, World News

The Catholic church on UVA’s campus, St Thomas Aquinas, opened their doors immediately after the lockdown was lifted.

Father Joseph-Anthony Kress, the chaplain there, said students in this generation prepare for these situations but living through them and then living with the grief is entirely different.

Father Kress said around 400 students attended a vigil that was held. Parish staff will continue to be available for anyone who needs to grieve.
