Let's Get Virtual
Fall Mug Up Returns!!
It's not too late to join us.
This fall we will continue our Mug Up series. This series will be more of a free flowing discussion that will focus on different aspects of spirituality each week. We will look into different aspects of spirituality using material such as how the Gospels and readings apply to us today, how we address difficult subjects when looking into our hearts to find God’s love, and other topics that will help us as we grow as individuals and as a community. Personal reflections will be shared in small groups as well as large group discussions.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius in all of its forms, create an awareness of God in all things—all people, all creation, every human experience, and especially in the person of Jesus. We offer a model of the Spiritual Exercises designed by St. Ignatius for use in daily life which takes place over 30 weeks, rather than 30 days. This program is currently being offered virtually.

Finding Abundance in Our Letting Go
"At the heart of autumn;s gifts are these twin energies of relinquishing and harvesting. It is a season of paradox that invites us to consider what we are called to release and surrender, and at the same time it invites us to gather in the harvest, to name and celebrate the fruits of the seeds we planted months ago. In holding these two in tension we are reminded that in our letting go we also find abundance." Christine Valters Painter
Come join us as Kathy works with us to approach this issue in our life. How do we let go so that we may find abundance. Kathy Elliott is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor in private practice in Rochester, NY. She is the founder of the Agape Counseling Associates. Her approach seeks to integrate faith principles with methods of psychological healing so individuals can best find spiritual, emotional, and psychological healing.
