Upcoming virtual meeting: Learn from Each Other: Digital Strategies
Throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford, many parish faith formation leaders have designed innovative websites or web pages to help children, youth and families grow in faith. Not only was this extremely helpful during this time of COVID, but it is an essential tool when ministering to today’s parents and children.
Come and be inspired by taking a little ‘tour’ of these websites at this virtual gathering.
Date: April 20, 2021

The pandemic has given those who work in ministry opportunities to connect to those we serve in new ways. Now that we are one year into this new way of ministering, review your growth with the Digital Challenge
. Are there still ways you can utilize these strategies to reach the youth and families you serve?
