Conversations About Coping Through COVID-19 by Zoom

This online Zoom discussion group to help participants maneuver more gently through the emotional and spiritual challenges of this pandemic. Articles about coping with fear and stress can be found in both printed and online forms, yet peer support remains one of the best ways of handling crises as we hear from one another in a more personal setting how we’re doing, if our reactions are normal, where to get additional assistance, how we’ve been able to help others, etc.

Sister Edna Michel, director of St. Francis Spirituality Center, will facilitate these conversations each Wednesday. While not a professional counselor, she has had nearly 40 years’ experience listening to people’s life stories and helping them walk through tough times.

If interested, please register with Sr. Edna Michel directly at 567.230.0061 or Jenifer at 419-443-1485 or peace@franciscanretreats.org. You will then receive directions to download and install Zoom to your computer, I-Pad, tablet or smart phone and the code required for this FREE online conversation. It is also possible to participate by phone only.

Write your Prayer

Praying for those who have come or will be coming to the Spirituality Center is something we take very seriously. We also include our partners in mission. The Sisters of St. Francis are a large part of this ministry. For many sisters, prayer is a full-time ministry. We welcome the opportunity to support your needs. If you have a specific prayer request you would like us to include in our intentions, please submit the form below.
