COVID-19 is fundamentally altering the way people live, and that includes how they practice their faiths. In this episode, DePaul’s new Vice President for Mission and Ministry Rev. Guillermo (Memo) Campuzano, C.M., outlines how the university community can continue connecting in faith-based ways during a time when we’re encouraged to be apart. Fr. Memo first came to DePaul as a student in 1999 after escaping from Colombia as a political refugee. He returned to DePaul for his current role just weeks before the university announced it would move nearly all courses and operations to remote delivery to help slow or stop the spread of COVID-19. In this time of social distancing, Fr. Memo says we should follow the example of St. Vincent de Paul and focus on finding creative ways to reach to people who may be marginalized members of society.
