Lay Pastoral Associate Professional Development Webinar: Mental Health in Times of Crisis and Spiritual and Emotional Coping Skills

About this Event

The Covid-19 pandemic has put our world into a collective trauma. Effective ministry during a crisis necessitates new skills to support our work as Lay Pastoral Associates and ministry personnel.

Our workshop presenter, Fr. Stephan Kappler, is the President and Chief Psychologist of The Southdown Institute. He is a licensed psychologist and priest of the Diocese of Oakland. Fr. Kappler will provide an overview of the symptoms of trauma and offer spiritual and emotional coping skills in maintaining a healthy and effective ministry presence.

This will be a virtual event on Zoom for Lay Pastoral Associates employed by a parish. It will include group discussions and will not be recorded.

There is no cost to attend. Registration closes on March 1, 2021.
