Support during COVID-19 and beyond
Following are some suggestions of people, groups and activities to provide support
1) Connection. Debbie Fear is keen to share ideas with parishioners, including young people and kids, that create ‘contagious kindness’!
If you’re interested, please email Debbie at email@example.com to work out the best way to chat about practical, do-able steps that promote connection in our homes and with our neighbours in these times when we’re being asked to stay apart.
2) Jesus of Nazareth. Laurie Woods invites parishioners to discover more about ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ as he walks us through various Gospel scenes and sayings.
If you are interested and want to know more about this, please email Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 0432 032 264 to find out how to join in, and work out a suitable time for a group to gather by internet.
