CEEP Network Resources for the COVID-19 Crisis
The CEEP Network and partners are working to connect and equip our network members and the church during this time of challenge and change for everyone. These resources are an offering to the church and available at no-cost. Below you will find links to webinars and materials we hope will be useful to the church as we adjust our parochial lives to meet this moment and pastorally care for our communities.
These webinars are offerings of the CEEP Network to the church. They are presented at no-cost, but registration is required. Please register below. Videos of the webinars will be posted after they are completed.
