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


Wednesday, September 6
7:00 - 9:00 pm
Cost: $20

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.
