Low Vision Support Group

If you are dealing with increased vision loss related to a disease or the aging process, join us at Saint Katharine Drexel Church in the Brockway Room (on the 2nd Tuesday of the month) at 10:15 AM. This support group will be facilitated by Marilynn Ward-Tluszcz from the Office for Blindness and Vision Services. You will learn about available resources, learn from others who are dealing with vision loss, and share the journey with each other.

Sanctuary of Hope

The Sanctuary of Hope Ministry’s purpose is to make the church a “sanctuary”, a safe place to start conversations regarding mental health. Over the course of 10 sessions, we aim to educate and enlighten participants by providing information developed by mental health professionals, theologians, and people with lived experience and offer prayerful reflection and intercession for spiritual support and companionship.

The sessions will be held in the Brockway Room from 7:00 to 8:30 PM
The minimum participant age is eighteen. We will be using St. Dymphna’s Playbook to guide our discussion.
