April 29, 2021

We as helpers need a steady diet of spiritual food so that we can continue to be generous distributors of God’s mercy. This workshop will explore your Moments of Mercy, your love language, how to create a menu to feed your soul and time for personal reflection. To continue to care for others requires that we take quality time to be nurtured and deepen our relationship with the Holy Trinity so that we can dwell in God’s tent.
