The Mental Health Ministry provides education and awareness to the parish community on issues related to mental health to breakdown the social stigma of having a mental illness, to provide information and local resources where help can be obtained, and to provide emotional and spiritual support.

Mental Health Mondays

A monthly gathering…Starting May 20th from 7-8:30pm

Each year, 1 in 4 families are affected by mental illness.  As Christians, we need to help and support individuals, family members and friends who have this illness.  After last year’s five-night informational program, a number of those who attended expressed interest in an ongoing discussion group.  To meet this need, our parish will be holding a meeting on the 3rd Monday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30pm.

A different aspect of mental illness will be discussed each month from a practical and spiritual standpoint.  There is no cost to attend.  Workbooks will be available to facilitate the discussion.

If you have any questions regarding this program, you can email Deacon Al Sedivy or Deacon Jerry Nora from St. Mary of Vernon .
