Stay Spiritually Engaged at Home

This crisis is an opportunity for the Church to be Church and to share the love and peace of Jesus Christ with all around us – even when we can’t see each other face-to-face. We are committed to prayerful solidarity in this time of limited public gathering/social distancing. Much like the universal Church unites each day praying the Liturgy of the Hours, let us unite, by growing deeper in our faith & staying spiritually engaged:
