Dear WomanKind community,
Due to the updated pandemic status in Virginia for COVID-19, Bishop Susan Goff has closed churches in the Diocese of Virginia until March 25 for worship. With broken hearts, we are canceling WomanKind 2020: Fearless Women of Faith scheduled for March 20-21, 2020. Health and safety always come first, and we are deeply grateful for Bishop Goff’s faithful leadership to keep the most vulnerable among us safe.
Much prayer and hard work has gone into this conference, and we are so thankful for the many hands that have contributed to planning WomanKind 2020.
Volunteers will soon contact those who are registered for WomanKind about refunds. Please consider donating some or all of your registration fee to WomanKind. Donations will help offset WomanKind planning costs already incurred and contribute to our WomanKindness project to furnish apartments in the new CARITAS Healing Place for Women, whose needs are undiminished by this pandemic.
We encourage all, whether registered for WomanKind or not, to consider supporting WomanKindness using the online registry at https://www.womankindrichmond.com/womankindness. Those supported by WomanKindness will likely be among the most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is possible that we will reschedule WomanKind to a later date. Should that happen, we will issue an announcement to all of you.
