Catholic Leadership Institute is gathering daily as a virtual community to pray fervently for those impacted by COVID-19:

  • We pray for all those who are afflicted by the Coronavirus, those who have died, and those who have lost loved ones in this pandemic, that the Lord may keep them in His comfort, heal them through His power and give them peace.
  • We pray for all government and civic leaders who are making important decisions about how best to combat this virus and for all frontline workers who put themselves at risk daily, that the Lord will guide and protect them in their important ministry.
  • We pray for an end to this pandemic, that the Lord bless our world with a cure and a halt to the spread of this disease.
  • We pray for all of us during this time of uncertainty and challenge, that the Lord embrace us with His hope and that we draw closer and find in Him everything we need.

We invite you to join with us in praying the above intentions during this time. If you would like to join our virtual daily prayer, please email Emily Scarola at [email protected].

In support of government physical distancing guidelines, the Catholic Leadership Institute office has been closed and all travel suspended as of March 16, 2020. Our team continues to work remotely during this time and is available during normal business hours via email or phone.

We will continue to support our valued Church leaders as they navigate the uncertainty and impact of COVID-19 on their faith communities. Catholic Leadership Institute will continue to provide assistance virtually when possible, and all other deliveries will be rescheduled as information becomes available. Parishes participating in the Disciple Maker Index can continue to submit paper surveys by mail to the Catholic Leadership Institute office, however we advise parishes to expect delays in paper survey processing and results. Should you have any leadership needs during this time, our Leadership Consultants are available and happy to provide you with additional support.

To learn how Catholic Leadership Institute can help your parish community as it moves forward out of the pandemic, visit our page for Post-Pandemic Parish Support to find out how we can help your community reopen and plan for the future.

For further questions, please email [email protected] and someone from our team will reach out to you as soon as possible. God bless you during this time and know that we are keeping you in prayer. Please remember Catholic Leadership Institute, our Church leaders, and our parishes in your prayers as well.
