Woodstock’s Lutheran Church Memorial attracts wide attention

Woodstock’s Lutheran Church Memorial attracts wide attention

Christ’s Lutheran Church’s “In Memorium,” featuring crosses honoring those who have died during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic on the church’s front lawn on Mill Hill Road in Woodstock continues to grow and has attracted national attention. That includes two major universities and the Smithsonian Institution, all of which have been working on research about how people have coped with grief during the pandemic when in-person funerals were put on hold and other grief mechanisms were restricted by the virus.
