ODDS & ENDS - RESPONDING TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC
THINGS TO CONSIDER IN YOUR PARISH:

Navigating through this unknown territory of pandemic may limit us in the usual ways of offering ministry, however there are still opportunities to serve. Updating parish lists, setting up Facebook pages and establishing e-mail newsletters are just a few options for connecting with people. 

PARISH PANDEMIC HELPS

We are including some of the better information links we have found. These are more general, varied and are from reliable sources. If you've run across others that should be shared e-mail us. We cannot post every possible link here, however we may post them on our Diocesan Facebook pages. lvaughn@nspeidiocese.ca
