Dear Friends:

I was so grateful for the wonderful Mental Health Masses this weekend, informing us of all the wonderful work happening there and the reminder from our homilist of the importance of connection with self, God and each other. I loved the invitation to place my hand over my heart each morning and to recite, "I am here and I love you." Beginning the day loving yourself is the best way to prepare to love others who God places in our midst, so have fun connecting this week.

We will have an opportunity to support the ongoing connections that clients make who consult our Mental Health Center for care by participating in the annual RIVERWALK, Sunday, October 21 that provides Mental Health services to those uninsured and underinsured. A luncheon and festivities in Celebration Hall will follow the walk. It is proven that a good walk can do wonders for our mental well-being. "Solvitur Ambulando" - It is solved by walking.

If you have little ones who are too young for our Religious Education program, please know that our nursery is available every Sunday at the 9:30 am Mass. We would love to care for your little ones while you enjoy Mass.

Sunday, October 14 is our next Coffee Hour after the 9:30 am Mass. Come and enjoy some great fellowship and treats! Our coffee hour team is always looking for new volunteers. If you are interested in joining the team by helping to organize and set up our monthly coffee hours you can email Mary Reed at Maryireed130@gmail.com.

We are saddened by the death of Priscilla Jackson. Our hearts go out to her sister Annie and her niece, Theresa. We send our heartfelt condolences to Joe Lerangis, the director of Spirit Singers, on the death of his grandmother Lorna Devarion. We also send our condolences to Scott Waller on the death of his mother.

Enjoy these beautiful fall days.

With Love,

Rev. Myra

Walking has many benefits. For example, it helps strengthen your bones and muscles, improves your mood, and helps you maintain a healthy weight. But did you know that your walking could also benefit others? When you walk with us at Spiritus Christi Mental Health Center's annual RIVERWALK on October 21, all the sponsorships you raise will help people who can't afford mental health care to get the services they need.
