Chris Jenkins, St. Mary’s Youth Minister and Licensed Clinical Social Worker, will facilitate three duplicate Parent Pastoral Care opportunities in response to the issue of community violence.

These gatherings are for PARENTS ONLY and are coming up fast. Tuesday, April 13 or Wednesday, April 14 from 8:15pm to 9:15pm via Zoom.

The aim of each 1hr. opportunity will be three-fold:

  • For parents to process thoughts and feelings about community violence – recent and local or otherwise
  • Review helpful tips for engaging children or teens in the midst of these very difficult circumstances
  • That we do this in a way that draws upon the deep strength of our Catholic Faith and consider how we respond as followers of Jesus
