LSE Standing Together in Loss

The Coronavirus pandemic has closed the LSE campus and our community – staff, students and alumni – is currently spread all around the world. We are living through unprecedented times that have brought death and grief closer to all of us.

But even though we are dispersed and many of us isolated, we can still stand together to support those who have lost loved ones. This site has been created to help us hold one another in our thoughts and prayers until we can come back together as a physical community.

Light a virtual candle on this site so that…

1. We can share in your loss and hold your loved one in our thoughts and prayers as a community.

2. We can invite you to attend a memorial service for the whole community once campus has reopened and large gatherings once again become safe.

3. If you are current staff member or student when campus reopens, we will invite you to join a bereavement support group hosted by the Faith Centre with no obligation.
