Conversations during the Pandemic: Where is God in this Experience? Part 2
Hosted by Glastonbury Abbey

Resuming Life in the “New Normal”: Mental and Spiritual Considerations

Date: Tuesday, December 8, 2020, 7:00-8:30 p.m. 

Resuming Life in the “New Normal”: Mental and Spiritual Considerations

We will talk about the upheaval, spiritual and mental health adjustments necessitated by the current crisis and highlight the strengths and vulnerabilities elicited from this experience.

How has your relationship with God grown or diminished during this experience?

Abrupt change and adaptation to new routines, social isolation and cautionary measures create uncertainty as we move into the “new normal.” We will talk about concrete approaches to promoting individual and family mental health.

This facilitated conversation will be led by Mary Rita Weschler, CSJA, and Kathleen Hagerty, CSJ, of the Women’s Table, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
