The Parish Connect Forum - March
Pope Francis has proclaimed 2021 as a “Year of Saint Joseph” to recall the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. The Catholic Charities quarterly Parish CONNECT Forums will tie the topics for this year in with various aspects of the life and titles of St. Joseph.
Whether you are protecting your own family, or a parish of families, the March Parish CONNECT Forum will help you understand the most up-to-date information on the COVID-19 vaccines, including the scientific, ethical, and logistical considerations.
