About this program

This small group invites you as a parent to reflect on the multiple roles you play in your life and how these roles intersect with your deepest sense of yourself and your understanding of God. Over the course of seven monthly sessions, you and fellow parents will deepen your sense of yourselves, come to an awareness of the spiritual foundations of your parenting, share experiences in the context of a small community, and develop a set of Ignatian-inspired practices to help ground you in moments of challenge.



$175/series. Partial work scholarships available.



If you would like to help subsidize the cost of participation for another person, we welcome your donation. Thank you for helping us to make it possible for all persons to participate in this program!
