Centro San Juan Diego successfully converted many of its programs to a virtual platform, providing classes and support to nearly 500 individuals since mid-March. Centro San Juan Diego and the Office of Evangelization and Family Life Ministries joined efforts to offer a new program called “Dialogue Among Mothers,” a virtual Spanish-language support group dedicated to helping mothers adjust to major changes within their families and personal lives during this pandemic—all from a Catholic perspective. The hope is to continue growing the program offline after the current COVID-19 concerns subside.
