“The University of Dayton is a Catholic, Marianist school, so our impulse in times of challenge is to gather people to pray, including after 15 tornadoes ripped through our community last May and a shooter took the lives of nine people in the city’s Oregon District last August,” said Kelly Adamson, director of residence life ministry. “But with the COVID-19 pandemic, we can’t gather right now. So instead, we are asking people to ‘come together’ by staying in their homes and putting up signs of appreciation and hope.”
