This eBook shares innovative ways that chaplains and other spiritual leaders are finding to celebrate together during this pandemic and beyond. It does not cover all religions or beliefs nor every holiday at this point. But, we will continually add to this document. Please share any ideas or resources you may have and check back for updates! Updated June 4, 2020. 



Updated June 4, 2020. In these challenging times, as in difficult times in the past, it is our instinct to gather and share rituals as a way of facing a shared crisis.  Unfortunately, social distancing and orders to stay at home make coming together not only impossible but inadvisable. 

“Finding ways to share the celebration of our

spiritual holy days becomes more important than ever.”

The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab, with the expert leadership of Dr. Shelly Rambo and Ylisse Cheney Bess, has pulled together this resource guide with ideas for celebrating the holy days of Easter, Passover and Ramadan even when coming together in person isn’t possible.  It also contains resources and ideas for those who are spiritual but not religious.
