Take some time to reflect on how the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected your life and the lives of those around you. Has this experience drawn you closer to God and others? During this time together, we will look at the lives of various saints who also lived through historical accounts of pandemics. How can we model our love of neighbor and family like these men and women to leave our own historical footprint in the upcoming year?
