Breastplate – February 2016

Adult Forum for Jan. 24, 2016

The Rev. Mary Raysa will speak about Healing Moments, a program that focuses on both the caregivers and the loved one with Alzheimer’s/dementia with a focus on helping caregivers to become more competent and confident in their role.

The other offering is a Newcomers Class. For those who are new to St. Patrick’s there will be a class with the rector to learn a little about the Episcopal Church and St. Patrick’s, and to answer any questions you may have. This one-session class will be offered three different times in hopes of full participation by newcomers. So, if you are new, please come to the education room (next to the nursery) on either January 24 (this Sunday), 31, or February 7, at 11 am. And bring your questions.

A rose is a rose is a hammer.

We welcome Amanda Stone Cushing of the Spirituality Network.

This group is truly a “network” with a variety of resources to help people develop their spiritual life. What connects all their work is the common thread of spiritual depth and growth. The Spirituality Network provides education and formation through their Wellstreams Program, Spiritual Direction for groups and individuals as well as Retreat Planning. It is ecumenical and inclusive, working with people with and without a formal faith affiliation.

Child care is available.
