Nurturing our Souls is a group open to all who are searching for ways to deepen their spirituality, broaden their relationships, nurture their souls and increase knowledge to better handle loss. Gatherings are held approximately once a month. They are announced in the Church bulletin and online calendar. Held at lunch time, the group enjoys a brown bag lunch in the Church Parlor followed by a period of prayer and meditation for joys and concerns. We continue on to an activity that meets our mutually agreed upon goals. Examples are:

  • "How to" session on meditation followed by walking the Boston College Labyrinth;

  • A walk through Cold Springs Park lead by a Horticulturist;

  • Guided tour of the Photo Images of Hope at Boston College.

Some activities are free. Some require a small contribution. We encourage suggestions and hope to address issues such as loss of health, loved ones, living quarters, finances, etc. We hope you can join us.  Contact Mary Tovell or Christine Micklitsch for further information.
