Episode Eight of the At The Well podcast is now available.
In this month’s episode, co-hosts Catholic Youth Parramatta’s Local Engagement Leader, Qwayne Guevara, and writer and mother Joy Adan are joined by Julia Hoban, youth minister at St Luke’s Catholic Faith Community, Marsden Park.
The three women discuss how their lives have changed since the coronavirus pandemic escalated around the world and provided suggestions as to how to stay connected with one another and with God.
“I’ve really struggled to comprehend everything that’s happened. The only way we can really survive in life is to be in community, because we can’t live alone, and so, I think this is really testing in all different ways,” Qwayne said.
“But I’m hopeful, and I think that’s part of why this podcast is timely because we get to talk a little bit about how we can stay connected in a time where we’re not able to see one another face-to-face.”

The idea to start a podcast for women followed the success of several At the Well evenings for young women, which were inspired by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s Year of Youth.
The podcast, the hosts explain, is a chance to build on the joys of the At The Well evenings on a more regular basis, a chance to give a feminine perspective on questions of faith and life, and to continue the conversations sparked during the face-to-face gatherings.
At The Well is an initiative of the Diocese of Parramatta, through its youth ministry Catholic Youth Parramatta.
