May is Mental Health Month and the Month of Mary. We give Mary a special spot in your prayer corner. Mary cares for all of us day-in-and-day-out without fail, interceding for us in even the tiniest matters. Remember that Mary always seeks to be a bridge not a barrier to Her Divine Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! We readily pray for one another when we’re dealing
with sickness, surgeries, cancer, or some chronic illness. Mental illness, on the other hand, isn’t often mentioned. Mental illness can take many forms. People suffering from mental illness are all around us, including in the church. When you or someone you love is dealing with a mental health concern, sometimes it’s a lot to handle. These illnesses of the brain affect all of us,
regardless of age, gender, economic status or ethnicity. Nearly every person sitting in the pews has been touched in some way by mental illness.
We meet on the 4th Thursday of each month, 7 PM to 8:30 PM. Our next Pray and Support Group is on May 24th in the social room
If you have a loved one with a mental illness please join us!
For all those who face discrimination and stigma due to mental illness, that they will find welcome and inclusion as branches of Jesus’ vine.
“Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.”
