The Sanctuary Course
Have you found yourself wondering where our Catholic faith supports mental health challenges? After all, life gets tough and can take a toll on our emotions which can lead to these challenges. Come and discover the many ways our faith can provide additional strength for life’s journey.
St. John Neumann Parish will be offering the Sanctuary Course for Catholics. The purpose of the course is to raise awareness and start conversations in local parishes regarding mental health. The course is not a therapy class. It is solely educational in design while it also uniquely includes faith and healing in its content. The classes are presented in a safe and non-threatening environment with opportunities for discussions.
The educational aspect of the course also benefits those seeking advice on how to help a loved one who may be struggling with a mental health challenge.
