How to Respond When Someone Experiences a Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Infant Loss
Webinar
One in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. Yet, many of us wonder how to react, what we should say, or what we should avoid saying when someone tells us they have experienced a perinatal loss. Further, when families come to us with questions, such as: "Where is my baby's soul?" or "Will I be with my baby again?", we may feel the pressure to make their grief disappear through our answers—though this is impossible to do. So, what are we to do? In this webinar, sociologist and bereavement doula Dr. Abby Jorgensen will provide insights from both research and practice on how we can respond when we are informed of a loss, especially in a ministerial capacity.

Join us as we take a look at what educators like St. John Bosco, St. Jean-Baptiste de La Salle, and Servant of God Thea Bowman did to manage expectations in their schools and classrooms.

Recognize and Help Older Catholics Live with Faith, Hope, and Intentionality
Webinar
Baby Boomer Catholics often came to the faith via a circuitous route as they served as the original test case generation for catechesis and liturgical reform around Vatican II. How are the memories of Catholics in the 55-plus generation a window into Catholic culture from the 1960s to the present? What meaning do these memories have for Catholics and catechumens of all ages today looking to be more immersed in the Church? How can older Catholics refine what they learned earlier in life to prepare themselves for experiences that are ahead, including the inevitable experience of their particular judgment?In this webinar, Baby Boomer Michael Amodei, a longtime catechist, book editor, and author of Reaching for Heaven: 14 Spiritual Goals as You Grow Older shares practical ways to tap into the memories and experiences of older Catholics in a simple program that would work well in a parish workshop, retreat, OCIA class, or in adult education.

In this webinar, Fr. Tim will share practical insights on guiding young people to develop a personal prayer life and deepen their faith.
