A PASTORAL LETTER ON THE PRESENCE OF GOD FROM BISHOP DAVID M. O’CONNELL, C.M.

As the pandemic passes the one-year mark and continues to stretch into 2021, a profound side-effect has emerged: isolation. The experience not only leaves people separated from each other through illness, social distancing and quarantining, but often leaves them, “wondering where God is,” writes Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., in his new release: “‘Behold, I Am with You Always,’ A Pastoral Letter on the Presence of God.”

Bishop O’Connell is pleased to share with you his video message in both English and Spanish encouraging all parishioners to get vaccinated and about a Catholic Charities initiative to assist parishes.  While this is not a requirement, getting vaccinated it is an act of charity.  We are aware that many in the Latino, Hispanic and Black communities have had trouble getting access to the vaccine - even though they have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.  Catholic Charities is now working to fix those inequities by:

- Helping people in our parishes pre-register for and get vaccines.
- Conducting COVID-19 Testing
- Building a community health worker workforce with community colleges.
- And encouraging people to join the “COVID Community Corps” as volunteers to help others access the vaccine.
