Mind Nourishment

Holy Spirit strives to create a Catholic community that receives everyone with love and eliminates the stigma of mental illness and addiction. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where people can share their stories with others and find hope and support through a proven method of recovery for the heart and mind.  No one need ever walk alone on such a painful journey. Contact Pastoral Care for more information.

Coming Soon:

Grace Groups – Scripture-based support ministry comprised of small groups for those suffering with mental illness and or addiction, as well as the family members of those afflicted.
