97. Return Home to The Eucharist

Published: June 15, 2021

Join Changing Our World‘s Jim Friend and cohost Anna Vallez for a panel discussion with three pastors who share their experiences of adapting to a virtual environment over the past year. What lessons have they learned? What new parish practices have brought their communities closer together, and what will they carry forward into a post-pandemic Church? As parishioners begin to return home to Mass, how do these pastors think about returning to the real presence of the Eucharist, and what steps will they take to welcome parishioners home? Hear how they have creatively engaged parishioners over the past year and how they are welcoming them home to the Lord’s Table. Our panel includes…

  • Fr. Joseph Scolaro, Pastor, Notre Dame Church in New Hyde Park, New York
  • Fr. Mike Murphy, Pastor, Sacred Heart Parish in Coronado, California
  • Fr. Allen Hoffa, Pastor, St. Joseph Parish of the Panther Valley in Summitt Hill, Pennsylvania. As of June 20, 2021, Fr. Hoffa will be Pastor of Holy Guardian Angels Parish in Reading, Pennsylvania
