REDISCOVERING THE JOY, ENERGY AND PURPOSE THAT EMERGES FROM MEETING THE NEEDS OF OTHERS.
On Wednesday 26 April, Caritas Diocese of Plymouth is delighted to host an evening with David Wells. In a short seminar we will consider why our wellbeing and mental health is linked through Christ to the love of our neighbour. This FREE event will take place from 6.30-8pm at Plymouth Cathedral, Wyndham Street West, PL1 5ER. There will be tea/coffee and refreshments from 6pm with an opportunity find out more about the work of local catholic charities before and after the event.
Often we think of the call to aid the poor and marginalised as a call for money and volunteers. This is indeed what is needed but if we are tired, worried about the future or just feeling cynical, these actions become another source of personal anxiety and stress. Jesus linked the service of others to our very fulfilment and teaches us that we can be more at peace if we can learn to focus our attention upon the needs of others. In this short seminar we will consider why our very wellbeing and mental health is linked through Christ to the love of our neighbour. We should not be afraid of holiness, writes Pope Francis, when he adds “It will take away none of our vitality or joy”.
David Wells is a well-known speaker, teacher, catechist and author with a wonderful gift for bringing the Gospel to life. Join us as we consider together how practicing our love of neighbour is a means to flourish rather than to burn out.
