Grandparents Workshop - October 26

Maybe your adult children no longer practice your faith and you’re wondering how to share your beliefs, values and worldview with your grandchildren in a way that does not make waves with their parents.

Or maybe you do all share one tradition and you want to make the most of your role as the spiritual matriarch or patriarch of the family. Join Carolyn Kolivitz, Spiritual director at Loyola Spiritual Center in St. Paul for a Spiritual Grand Parenting Workshop that is a fun mix of storytelling, individual reflections & group discussions on this fascinating topic!

  • Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019
  • Time: 10:00 am—2:30 pm
  • Cost: $20 per/Person and Includes lunch

To register stop by or call the parish office at 651-784-3015.
