Twinning in the Time of COVID-19

Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, Lasallian ministries in the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN) and the Lwanga District in Africa are working closely to remain connected throughout the pandemic. In April, after most schools in both RELAN and Lwanga closed, twinning coordinators from the Region, Districts and ministries in RELAN and Lwanga came together on Zoom to share updates on the challenges of COVID-19 and to discuss creative measures they were taking to support students academically and emotionally. This has continued into the fall, as twinning coordinators remain in contact with the Lwanga Brothers.

This month, twinning coordinators received new resources, including updates on COVID-19 impacts to individual Lwanga ministries and a video message from Brother Timothy Coldwell, FSC, RELAN General Councilor, and Brother Ghebreyesus Habte, FSC, Lwanga District Visitor.
