MMOMI Support Groups on Zoom- Coming Soon
This week was a bechmark moment for us! If you are a member, you should now have the 2022 Newsletter. I intentially placed our focus on supporting persons with mental illness. Going forward, I will share and train others in offering our "Treatment of Love": A Spiritual Care ministry offered to those who suffer from the Illness of the human mind.
Will you join me?
These unique groups offer spiritual support in a way that offers hope, healing and comfort. The groups are organized as a sacred space to allow for prayer, sharing, education and spiritual advocacy. Tim will offer reflections from the teachings of St. Pope John Paul II’s - Dolentum Hominum which is written as concern for pastoral care to the sick. And later, our reflections will be published through a bulletin called Under Her Mantle. -Click for sample
The Zoom Platform Model- A Monthly Model- Last Friday's of the month
You can join us from your home or parish through the internet. On our MMOMI Page you can find the Zoom invite information which will allow you to connect with us. Tim will also send out a blog each month which will contain this same Zoom invite information for our online members.
What will the Groups Look Like
Each month at sign on, Tim will offer a short scripture reflection and pray the Chaplet of the Merciful Mother of the Mentally Ill. We will screen share live Eucharistic Adoration as well. Then, sharing time will be allowed to offer a chance for our hearts to become one. Tim will then present some type of education tool for the group to study for the month. We will close by suggesting how the group can become advocates for those who are in need of support. Time sensitve: Zoom's free service only allows 45 mins and 100 people at a time. So the meetings will be customized as we go to fit the best timeframe. For more information: Click here to be taken to our Support Group Page)
