SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The annual Bishop Walk hosted by Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri was set to be held today, but was canceled because of COVID-19.

So instead of the walk, the group hosted a Facebook live stream of the bishop’s prayer.

The event is also a fundraiser for Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri.

The group says it is accepting donations at
