Presented by Fr. Norm Douglas

In our relentless busyness as ministers of the Church, we can often lose the rhythm between work and rest.  Has weariness set in?  Are others truly encountering Christ in their interactions with you? Take time to recharge through reflection, renewal and personal growth in fellowship with other disciples. You will assess how your life experiences and attitudes influence your energy level and commitment at work to become more centered, purposeful, and resilient. After the retreat, you are welcome to enjoy our beautiful grounds for further rest and reflection.

“So Your Child is Off To College!” A Mindful, Ignatian Way to Say Good-Bye

Price: $20.00

Date: September 6, 2017

Wednesday, September 6
7:00 - 9:00 pm

Presented by John Ropar, Ph.D., P.C.C.

This program provides an opportunity for parents who are sending their sons or daughters off to college to:

  • Reflect on their feelings of loss and good-bye
  • Learn new parenting skills for a time of transition
  • Share the challenges of this time with other parents
  • Take time for prayer to ground yourself in faith

Ignatian spirituality offers insights and lessons on how to support parents whose children are making the transition from late adolescence into early adulthood. Ignatian themes can inform our parenting, along with a mindfulness approach, and offer a way to support our sons and daughters while we as parents maintain our peace of mind and love even more deeply and thoughtfully.

John Ropar has a doctorate in counseling and extensive counseling experience at the college level.

Many parents and grandparents know that aching feeling when our children turn away from the Catholic faith we know and love.

We want our young adult children to know God’s love and mercy, but knowing how to help them get there can be difficult. Join us for an evening of reflection, prayer, conversation, and hope with other parents and grandparents of young adults like you. It will be a source of encouragement and hope as you receive strength for the journey of loving our young adults back to God. Come and see!
