2021-2022 Adult Enrichment Speaker Series:  Going Deeper

Growing closer to Christ through a deeper understanding of... Inclusion, Compassion, Service, Scripture, Prayer, Stewardship, and Ministry to others.

Our Adult Enrichment Speaker Series and Seton's own Monday night Family Faith combined their efforts about three years ago.  Since that time, we have scheduled the same presentations for 9:30 a.m. Sunday Morning (Sippel Hall) and 6:30 p.m. Monday night (Sanctuary) Family Faith.  Each presentation this year will offer some time for presentation of topic, along with just a bit of small group discussion.

Our Monthly Speaker Series continued in November with Michelle Nemer's discussion on Modeling Compassion through Transitions.  We continued our year long speaker series which focuses on our Parish Vision statement: TO BE A GROWING COMMUNITY THAT INSPIRES ALL TO FOLLOW JESUS WITH A SPIRIT OF INCLUSION, COMPASSION, AND SERVICE.

  • What can following Jesus look like through the path of transition?
  • How has compassion been modeled for you?
  • Consider the greatest need for your Christ-like compassion to self and with others.

February 21, 2021 - Authentic Self-Care Strategies to De-Stress from a Catholic Perspective - Julia Marie Hogan

Watch the video recording of the presentation here:

Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and stressed by life right now? Have you been feeling overwhelmed due to your life's upheaval over COVID -19? Your schedule is busy, you are faced with making new decisions every day, and it's easy to feel like you don't have time to de-stress.  Add a global health crisis, and you just might find yourself in a great need of care.   Self-care is an important tool for managing stress but it is often overlooked or overcomplicated. Julia Hogan, LCPC, a Catholic licensed therapist and author, will share practical ways you and your family can practice authentic and effective self-care from a Catholic worldview.
