The Sanctuary Course:
The Sanctuary Course for Catholics is a study guide for small groups, designed to raise awareness and start conversations in local churches regarding mental health. Your group might include:
- People with questions about mental health
- Mental health professionals with a wealth of knowledge to share
- Leaders who want to engage their community in mental health conversations
- People supporting loved ones with mental health problems
- People living with mental health problems
We are offering this course as an in-person experience on the first Saturdays of the month for 8 sessions. The course will also be offered via Zoom during the week. Details are in the parish newsletter.
The next in-person meeting will be advertised in the newsletter.
St Joseph’s Retreat:
Our parish St Joseph’s Retreat is Saturday 17 September. There will be an evening option on Friday 16 September for those who can’t give up a full day for the Saturday retreat. All are welcome to attend the evening session. Fr John O’Connor of the National Liturgy Centre and Food for Faith (foodforfaith.org.nz) will help us to get to know and love the gentle St Joseph. Lunch provided. Koha/donation appreciated.
