Ready to take action? Here are some resources.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we've put together three documents, as our crumbs (oh, that we had loaves and fishes!) to contribute. Please feel free to adapt in any way that is useful for you and your parish. Let us know of other similar resources that are more developed and helpful.
We invite you to share with us additional ideas and the ways that you are using these materials.

2. Assessment for Parish and Community Needs and Resources for use in an emergency such as the coronavirus pandemic
