The Diocese of Saint Cloud is offering a FREE three-part Zoom webinar series in October, November and December focused on our 2020-21 diocesan theme around the Eucharist: “One Body: Gathered. Nourished. Sent.” Each month’s webinar will focus on a different aspect of the theme. These webinars are open to everyone in the diocese.
This first webinar will be a 45-minute presentation through Zoom with 15 minutes for questions at the conclusion.

The pandemic has caused a rethinking of Sunday Mass—why we participate and why we may not. Livestreaming has brought the faithful much spiritual consolation, but what is it missing? And why does it matter?
