Archbishop Mitty understands that a student’s faith is deeply interconnected to his or her family. Parents are the first educators on faith and religion. In response, Archbishop Mitty provides opportunities for parents, adult family members of our students, and alumni to help deepen their faith through a lecture series.
Throughout the course of the year, Campus Ministry will host two evenings of learning, discussion, and sharing for our parents, faculty, staff, and alumni. These will be opportunities to hear from our highly educated and dynamic faculty as they bring relevant topics from their classroom to all of you. Be prepared to share wine or beer and a small bite while learning more and discussing questions about our Catholic faith. The evening begins with casual discussions during a social hour and then we will hear a presentation by one of our faculty members, followed by some time for questions and answers.
Date and topic for the Spring semester are as follows:
Adult Spirituality Series: Grief and Loss: Where is God in all of this suffering?
Marian Wyman, Religious Studies Department and Elaine Calamba, Counseling Department
Tuesday, January 31st
How can people of faith trust in God’s care during times of tragedy? In the midst of our suffering, how can we honor our own vulnerability and form our resilience? This evening will highlight modern theological and pastoral scholarship about grief, loss, meaning-making and resilience, and conclude with practical suggestions and resources from the AMHS Counseling Department for processing grief. RSVP will be forthcoming.
