Rosemont Lost and Found event

COVID has changed you. What have you lost in COVID times? What gifts have you discovered? You might want to spend some time reflecting on grief and loss so that you can move on to discover what you have gained during the last 18 months. Join our facilitator, David Hoover for a workshop we are calling Lost and Found. Through a variety of spiritual practices and safe small group discussions, participants will be guided to explore the toll and the treasure of this pandemic.
