YOUTH AND FAMILIES – QUARANTINED, BUT NEVER ALONE

More than ever, it is important to remain rooted in our faith. Physical distancing, among other preventative measures against COVID-19, has left us with more time at home than we may be used to.

Our routine has changed considerably and hopefully we will carve out some time to remain connected to our Lord and to each other.

Here are some links to activities that allow us to encounter the God of tenderness in our daily lives. Explore them! There is something for everyone: children, teens, young adults, parents, pastoral workers and youth ministers.
