Archbishop Nelson Perez invites all the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to join him spiritually every day this week at 7 p.m. to watch a 15-minute video given by dynamic local speakers in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s presentation, “Resurrection & Restoration: Archbishop Pérez’s Easter Video Series.”
(Learn more about the video series and its speakers here.)
This seven-part series in English, Spanish and American Sign Language will break open the mystery of the resurrection of Jesus and his power to bring new life in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The online retreat is part of “Arise: Restoring Catholic Life After the Pandemic,” the archdiocese’s initiative to invigorate parish life with guidance and resources, and help transition back into in-person life in the church as COVID-19 restrictions slowly lift.
See each segment of the seven-day retreat below.
