We have seen priests around the country embrace new forms of evangelization because of the coronavirus. 

Online masses, drive through confessions and videos for catechesis are just some of the ways that they’re on the frontlines in their own way.

Giving priests the spiritual strength to face the coronavirus pandemic head-on is the goal of “A Shepherd’s Care,” a program by the Sacred Heart Institute which provides videos for the clergy during these times.

The program offers advice to priests on how to communicate digitally, and even hosted a virtual retreat during Holy Week with Brooklyn’s own Monsignor Thomas Caserta. 

The director of the Sacred Heart Institute, Father lachlan Cameron, joins Currents News to discuss how the program is helping priests in their ministry.
