Parent Faith Formation Recap

“self care” with jasmine gomez
Sun, November 18, 2018

Jasmine Gomez, a behavioral health and pastoral care professional, spoke to our parents about self care. As parents, we understand that you are carrying a huge amount of responsibilities. Jasmine stressed that in order to succeed as parents, spouses, workers, friends, and the myriad of hats we wear, it’s important to take the time to recharge and make sure we are taking care of ourselves. We even indulged in a few easy and fun self-care activities as a group!

Adult coloring is a recommended anti-stress activity that promotes creativity and relaxation.

Games are a great way to switch off our devices and allow our brains to unwind. Fun for the entire family!

what’s new for parents

 

Join Our New Facebook Group For SFDS Parents

NEW! We’ve created a private Facebook group exclusively for SFDS Parents. We'll share announcements relevant to families, Catholic-inspired content especially for parents, and best of all you can communicate with each other. We hope this becomes a strong faith-based community hub for our parishioners with kids. Please join us online:
www.facebook.com/groups/ParentsofSFDS

 

A Father Kelly Reading recommendation:

Why I want my daughter to grow up in a noisy, chaotic Catholic Church by Katie Prejean McGrady
In case you missed this on our Facebook page, here’s a wonderful article from America Magazine that perfectly encapsulates the sort of parish we strive to be: A NOISY ONE! Pope Francis recently called on youth to “make more noise.” Where there is noise, there is joy and energy and activity. And if you are making noise, you’ll likely feel more comfortable to smile at a fellow parishioner, make thoughtful suggestions to help our parish grow, and make your place within our SFDS Family.
