Our Next Level parish survey identified mental health as one of key parish and community needs to be addressed. As a first step in that direction, we’ll use the last two Wednesdays of September for talks on the topic.
Bridgette Perez, director of the Caritas program in New Brunswick, will talk after the 7pm Masses on September 22 and 29. Her talks, offered in English and Spanish, will touch upon basics of mental health on Sept. 22, and the role of healing from shame on Sept. 29. We hope this will be the beginning of a conversation that the parish will carry forward from there.
