WINSLOW — The Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyon, located at the St. Joseph Center on 80 Garland Road, plans to run a Let’s Connect technology workshop this month.

The free monthly technology workshops, for anyone older than 55, are focused on safely using technology in daily lives: dealing with malicious emails, web browsing, using video conferencing to connect with family and friends, online shopping, and more.

This month’s sessions are set for 1:15-2:45 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, and Wednesday, Nov. 16.

In advance of the holiday season, safe internet shopping practices will be covered at the November sessions. Those who plan to attend any session can call 207-873-4512 or email [email protected].

Other programs at the center include:

• Rose’s Room, a monthly, nonsectarian support group for those with a loved one in prison or jail. The group meets via Zoom at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. To participate or have any questions about this compassionate and confidential ministry or would rather set up an individual meeting, email [email protected].


• Becoming a Welcoming Community, this group seeks to reach out to LGBT+ persons and their loved ones, per the call of the U.S. bishops in their statement “Always Our Children.” Participants are welcomed with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. There are in-person opportunities to meet, but a monthly meeting is held via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month. For more information or to join the group, email [email protected] or call 207-873-4512.

• Saint Joseph’s Sanctuary, inspired by Pope Francis encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si’, the Sisters host free educational events to teach new ways to care for the earth. The group meets from 10 a.m. to noon on the fourth Saturday of each month for a skill sharing workshop, learning permaculture techniques that are good for the earth and all creatures.
