Bishop Larry's Guidance on Mayor Caldwell's “Second Stay at Home/Work from Home” Order 2020-25



As we journey through this election season, Bishop Larry is supporting an effort from “KUPUNA POWER” who is partnering with the Office of Elections to educate the elders of our communities on how to vote.  They have provided a link to a brochure that may be shared with your parish.
