Event description
Prescription for COVID: A Daily Dose of Faith, Hope, and Love

About this event

These unprecedented times have been upsetting, unfair and challenging for maturing adults. We need our daily dose of faith, hope, and love to fight off the fear, gloom, and dread. As we reflect on what helped us through this past year, we discover that it was and continues to be the strength of the Gospel which provides us with answers to the trauma and fears of the pandemic.

Taking time to reflect back on the challenges and the blessings helps us to be grateful for what has occurred as it strengthens our steps for our continuing days ahead (whatever they hold). Together in this webinar, we will spend some time reflecting within our hearts and with the supportive stories and experiences of others.

All men and women in the second half of life (50+), including volunteers, parish leaders, parish staff, and priests are welcome to join this webinar.

There is no cost to attend. Registration closes on Thursday, June 3, 2021.
