Saint Bernard's is a Pokemon "Gym"

People have been stopping by this past week playing Pokemon Go. When they get here, they see signs inviting them to go inside the church to find a Pokeman friend -- and then they are invited to say a prayer. Great to see so many people make a visit!  Keep playing and praying!

Workshop: Effective Family Communication: Building Connections, Breaking Barriers

It's mid July and maybe you wish that school is starting again next week?? How will you all survive the next six weeks of summer. Perhaps there has been some yelling, some sulking, some sibling rivalry, some rude responses to a parent's request for cooperation…you know,  normal family stuff.

Our suggestion: GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!  And come hear Dr. Ray Shelton give some fabulous ideas about more effective family communication as part of our "Mercy in Motion" series.

Thursday, July 21, 7:30-9:00 p.m., Parish Center—All are welcome!

The Bible says, “Let us speak the truth in love.” The first duty of love is to listen. Good communication in the family and beyond is built on listening more carefully and responsively, and acknowledging the feelings and wants that people express in word and mood. People are much more likely to listen if they have been listened to with actively expressed acknowledgments. The open ear is the only believable sign of an open heart! Join Dr. Shelton in this thought-provoking workshop to explore your communication, your ability to listen and to choose words that build connections and break down relationship.

Dr. Ray Shelton is a consulting psychologist with the Diocese of Rockville Centre, presenting programs in stress management, communication, parenting, and marriage preparation. In his primary work, he is a Fellow and Director of Professional Development with the National Center for Crisis Management, and has provided consultation, development and training to the law enforcement, emergency services, corporate, industrial, insurance, medical, and education community in the area of Stress Management, Crisis, Trauma and Violence. He serves as the Clinical Director for the Nassau County Fire Service Traumatic Stress Response Team and regularly consults with the news media regarding Traumatic Stress, offering expert commentary for CNN, ABC, FOX, NY Times and Newsday. In addition, Dr. Shelton is an honorably discharged veteran, having served in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. He is also an Eagle Scout.

PS. People pay good money for a workshop like this.  But it's free at St. Bernard's.  And air conditioned. And you need this right now, right?  Bring your friends who are parents -- you'll have a good time together.
