Dear Waterloo Catholic Community –
Today we sit on the one year anniversary of COVID-19 being declared a pandemic and tomorrow will mark one year since we were told we were going to have an extended March Break, that ultimately became our first lockdown. A great deal has happened since then and as a community it is my sincere hope that as you look back on this past year, there are some moments of hope and joy that you can identify. There can be absolutely no denying that the year has brought hardship and challenges to virtually everyone, but they have not been felt equally. Some of us will have suffered more than others, will have been impacted more than others, and some will have truly struggled to find the path forward.
