The Holy Spirit Mental Health Ministry presents “Family Grace”, a small group program created by Mental Health Grace Alliance.
If you are a family member, spouse, or friend of someone who is experiencing a mental health difficulty, Family Grace is for you. The program is about sharing your story – the experience, the confusion, the pain, and the loneliness. Family Grace is an empowering, grace-filled discipleship experience for personal and community growth. The Grace Alliance has only one vision and one value … “To love them well.”
Beginning October 12th at 7:00pm, we will hold weekly meetings for 6 weeks with a break at the end of November thru early January and then will resume for 8 weeks starting in January.
An example of a typical evening of the program:
Session on “Handling Problems”
*We read Genesis 41:29-40, 46-49 and discuss how Joseph, instead of focusing on what seemed impossible, focused on gleaning wisdom from the Lord to execute a problem-solving plan.
*We learn a problem-solving technique with the acronym – IDEAS.
Identify (Dissect & Decide) – What is the problem? Dissect by identifying smaller issues and choose one issue to focus on at the moment.
Desired Outcomes (Prayer) – Determine the desired outcome to the problem and pray!
Engineer – Brainstorm different ways to address the problem, possible solutions, and the people who can help carry out these solutions.
Adapt – What are the potential roadblocks and how can you navigate around them?
Serve (Pray & Implement) – Pray again for the process. Determine the first tangible step and set a realistic time frame for this to take place.
*We share and discuss what resonates with us based on the chapter material.

Mass of Love and Mercy – Gabriel Wanous
Beginning the weekend of October 7/8, our mass setting will be Mass of Love and Mercy by Gabriel Wanous. These mass parts will run until Christ the King weekend (11/25-26). This setting includes Glory to God, Gospel Acclamation (Alleluia), Holy, We Proclaim Your Death, Great Amen, and Lamb of God. With guidance and recommendations made from our Music CORE Team, I found a Mass Setting that I liked, and it is something we haven’t done at Holy Spirit. Mass of Love and Mercy by Gabriel Wanous is published through a website called WorshipNOW, which is one of many music publishing companies that provides modern worship music resources for the Catholic Church. In recent times, some of the responsorial psalm settings I’ve chosen have come from this website. You can access and listen to Mass of Love and Mercy by clicking here.
