A COVID particle with the text "Faith-Based and COVID-19" overlaid

Every two weeks the Minnesota Council of Churches convenes the judicatory leaders of member and non-member communions for education and conversation with staff from the Minnesota Department of Health. These calls build community amongst Minnesota's top religious leaders from multiple traditions and help us all to be on the same page as far as how our state is batltling the pandemic.

We have been asked by our partners at the Minnesota Department of Health to invite all clergy and lay leadership to this webinar taking place next Monday that the established best practices and state of our state can be better understood by Minnesota faith communities.
