Bishops offer reflection on COVID and the call to Christian renewal - The COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on all us, but what’s been the effect on us as a Catholic community?
On Sept. 14, the Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories released a pastoral statement, called On the Impact of COVID-19 & the Call to Christian Renewal. (read the letter at tinyurl.com/yy9f27cq
