Divine Mercy Parish now enters our last week of our mental health gatherings. The recordings are found on our parish website https://www.divinemercy-parish.org under our blog.
This past Tuesday night Fr. Miguel did a fabulous job of discussing the connections between our spirituality and mental illness. We are body and soul intertwined so any illness in the body is also connected with our soul and this includes mental illness. Father shared many beautiful quotes from Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl that explored what we are all searching for in life.
Our last session will be Tuesday evening, 6:30-8 PM in room C in the church basement. We will have an information fair set up on tables displaying many available resources for people suffering from mental illness, their families, or those who wish to learn more about this ongoing suffering in our community.
We also will have a survey available to better understand what should be planned to follow our course. This survey is also available in both lobbies near our mental health brochures. Please return this survey to the parish office in the envelope provided.
Our parish mental health ministry is not intended to replace professional services. We are trained in appropriate procedures to maintain the privacy of those with whom we relate. We all continue to be involved in diocesan mental health training. We can be reached at email@example.com and our team includes Brenda Murphy, Kay Ringelstetter, Kate Rossing and Marian Thistle.
