In our world, there are all kinds of families. The families I deal with the most in my ministry to seafarers are far from each other. Fathers, sons, brothers, husbands, sisters, mothers, wives and daughters sign contracts to sail away from their families so that their families may have better lives.
In this special Advent of 2020, with all the uncertainties brought on by the pandemic, we can take an extra step. We can pray to Mary like we usually do, and we can also learn from her and imitate her.
Catholic schools are among those impacted by the pandemic this year, so they are reaching out to alumni and supporters to help with the virtual Steps for Students 5K fundraiser set to begin Feb. 20, 2021.
