Stay spiritually enriched with one of these upcoming virtual events

Aaron Lambert

While Colorado may not be completely shut down any more, the “safer-at-home” order still means just that.

What this means is that while many events are no longer happening in-person, thanks to the wonders of the internet and platforms such as Zoom and Facebook Live, event organizers have pivoted to virtual gatherings for people to participate in from the comfort of their homes.

The good news is this means that several upcoming Catholic retreats and events will still be happening virtually. Here are a few that you won’t want to miss.
