The COVID-19 Vaccines

Sorting Through Facts, Sharing Our Mission

There’s no doubt that a vaccine has been much anticipated ever since COVID-19 was declared to be a pandemic. In this webinar, we will hear from renowned experts, Dr. David Williams and Dr. Roger Seheult, and consider what we know to date about the vaccines, questions and concerns, and implications for certain population groups.  We will also discuss what the Church can do to foster hope, awareness, and healing.
