We have produced a short booklet containing both practical information, tips for coping with our current situation, and prayers and poems to uplift and encourage.
Recognising that many older people may not have email or are less familiar with using the internet, here at GOG we decided to put together this colourful booklet and have sent it out to nearly 200 people on our contact list, for whom we had no email details, only a physical address. Our hope is that this will bring some small blessing to those who receive it through their letterbox.
You can also view, download, share or print an A4 version of this booklet below:
There are two versions – one that is more suitable for those connected with the Catholic church (Catholic version) and the second which has less specific Catholic content but still includes prayers and scripture (General version).
PLEASE NOTE: this printable version is designed so you can print it off yourself on A4 landscape and staple it at the left hand corner or left hand side, (as most of us do not have a long arm stapler to staple a booklet in the middle!)
Why not print it off and send it to a friend who would benefit from some encouragement and help at this time?
Alternatively, send a link to this page by email or Whatsapp to your friends and family.
If you would like to reproduce this booklet yourselves to distribute in hard copy A5 booklet form, please contact Rhoda at firstname.lastname@example.org for the original artwork.
In addition, if you would like to add your own organisations’ details to the back of the booklet before distributing, or work with us on an amended version for your area, please be in touch with Rhoda – we are more than happy for this to be a blessing to people in other networks and areas.
