Keep The Faith

Chicago faith leaders offer prayers and perspective two years into the pandemic

We asked local faith leaders to share some words of wisdom as the COVID-19 pandemic reaches its two-year mark.

In March 2020, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker issued a stay-at-home order in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. The two years since have been full of fear and heartbreak — but there are also reasons to be hopeful.

To mark the anniversary of the shutdown, we teamed up with the University of Chicago to ask faith leaders from across the city to share short sermons reflecting on the pandemic. Click “Listen” to hear their remarks, intended for people of all beliefs.
