Serve  & Connect . . .

Right now, while in-person gatherings are discouraged, please call friends and family to check in with one another.  Particularly, check in on those who are not comfortable online or have Internet access. Not everyone texts. So be conscious of your loved ones' preferred method of communication. 

 

For those battling any form of mental illness, be it anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, etc. times like these can be truly overwhelming. We may be required to physically distance ourselves from others, but we need to keep in contact in any other ways we can. So call, text, FaceTime, Skype, use social media, send a card, whatever, but keep in touch, especially with those you know are also battling other issues. We all need to know there are people out there who care about us right now.


Taking care of each other is the best way we can serve the common good. 

Loneliness is a struggle for everyone right now and recent surveys indicate that almost half of Americans are having feelings of depression or anxiety as the effects of social distancing drain our spirits. All Saints’ developed an educational brochure to help you and the people you care about manage loneliness in the midst of pandemic. In it you will find ideas for addressing loneliness when life requires us to stay apart from each other. We also invite you to explore the Loneliness in America Project for other resources and education. Loneliness has been a significant problem in the United States for many years but the pandemic of 2020, and the self-isolating behavior it forced on us, makes this distressing state of mind an almost universal experience.
