Spiritual First Aid for a Virtual Community: Stronger Together While Physically Apart
A great resource created by Dr. Josephine Lombardi to help anyone who is feeling discouraged during this time of longing for the fullness of our Church experience; attending mass, receiving sacraments, praying with our community. This short document uses VICTORY as an acronym and offers concrete steps to take to build endurance and resilience during this time of physical distancing.
