A heart-warming gathering
It was a joyful occasion when, for the first time since the beginning of COVID-19, I gathered my team of Volunteers for a picnic. We brought our lunches, respected social distancing and shared our lived experiences of the pandemic.
Several have committed to phoning 2 or 3 people a day, others enjoyed quiet time with their spouse or helping out their children while others made virtual visits to family using Face Time or Messenger. One member worked at the parish from time to time. All appreciated the assistance of younger friends or neighbors who helped with grocery shopping. Acts of unforgettable solidarity were witnessed.
We all grew in awareness that we could live more simply, with less and focus on the essential which included a realization of the importance of our spirituality in the present circumstances. Having had to sacrifice team meetings due to the present situation we came to appreciate them more. We recognized the need to support each other and nurture our relationship more consciously.
In closing I wish to thank God for each of you who are witnesses in your respective milieus:
