Need Help Understanding Technology?

The COVID-19 crisis forces all of us into new and very different ways of taking care of ourselves and communicating. OLA parishioners can already use technology to participate in daily mass, which addresses our spiritual nourishment and enriches our connection as an OLA community in the midst of COVID. There are additional ways to address our physical and social nourishment with the help of technology.

 

The “Technology Coach” can help set up user accounts, walk you through using the program, and answer questions you have. If you would like assistance from an OLA Technology Coach email Matt at OLAWednesdayMensGroup@gmail.com. Be sure to include your name and phone number, and a technology coach will call you within 24 hours to assist. Allow us to keep you connected during this
