Social Distancing Changes Methods But Not the Joy in Group Meetings.

Portuguese women's ministries begins meeting online with Zoom.

Inter-European Division (EUD)

[Portugal] This women's group in Portugal has been meeting on a monthly basis since 2018. Due to the COVID-19 isolation measures, today we had our first meeting via Zoom. Although digital will never replace physical, we found great joy and comfort "gathering together" this way. We had a short meditation, prayer time and musical moments. Every participant is looking forward to the next one! In this particular time we are living, it is important to feel part of a community and to know we can share our burdens and blessings.
