The Catholic Church selects particular passages for each season and week of the year for our reflection. The young adults meet on Monday night to reflect together on the Sunday gospel so that we can hear what God is saying to each of us and how we are called to authentically respond to God in our unique life situation. You are always welcome to join us!

  • Date: Monday, March 13, 2017
  • Time: 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Description: Anxiety and
    Anger:
    The Challenge

    How we manage anxiety and anger affects the wear-and-tear of stress (allostatic load) on our health. Allostasis explains how stress may result in disease. It is the process of achieving and maintaining stability in our internal environment.
    (M. Groer)

    Repeated challenges, inability to adapt to repeated challenges, inability to end the allostatic responses after the stressor has been removed, and inability to produce an adequate allostatic response increases our allostatic load. (McEwen)

    Learn strategies to manage anxiety and anger to ease the wear-and-tear of daily hassles and life transitions in a chaotic world.

    Adlerian psychology is the most optimistic psychology. It’s not “everything is wonderful”. No, everything is not wonderful. Everything is lousy, but it only remains lousy when we do nothing about it. (Lydia Sicher, M.D., Ph.D., during World War I)


    In “(W)holiness” and Learning
    Adapted from St. Bonaventure

    January 23, 2017
    On the Corner of Anxiety and Anger
    Learn how anxiety and anger trigger each other. Don’t let fears and anger of being defective, vulnerable, taken advantage of, being pushed around, put down, rejected, etc. push around your sanity. How can more effectiveness and satisfaction result?

    February 6, 2017
    Anxiety and Anger In Intimacy
    Stop letting fear of losing control or rejection sabotage intimacy. Stop using sarcasm, gotcha’s, or little digs to substitute for managing anxiety and anger. Get more of your needs met. Don’t let triggers of little things ignite anger of the past.

    February 13, 2017
    Tips For Handling Awkward Situations
    How can you manage fear of embarrassment or humiliation? What is something to do in between avoidance and aggression? Learn how to prepare, and act in spite of anxiety or anger.

    February 27, 2017
    Feeling Stuck: Part One
    Don’t allow past failures, poor decisions, or missed opportunities make you unforgiving of yourself and cynical about life.




    March 13, 2017
    Feeling Stuck: Part Two
    Stop hanging on to resentments to people who have wronged you, held you back, betrayed your trust, or abandoned you.

    March 20, 2017
    Stop Creating Your Own Ceiling
    Discover how anxiety and anger create an enduring life pattern of your erection of an artificial ceiling. What interfering life patterns can you modify to help you go beyond your comfort zone? What would happen if you could push up the ceiling just a little more?

    Repair My House: Mind-Body-Soul Skills For the Journey, a psycho-educational-spiritual health-promotion and illness-prevention program, combines practical psychology with the life-giving ways of Francis of Assisi.

    Now in its 27th year, 880 programs have helped over 36,500 participants lower the wear-and-tear of stress (allostatic load), and increase Eudaimonia (Aristotle’s word for well-being/our best self: effectiveness + satisfaction). Participants make big mistakes smaller, increase self-confidence and self-efficacy, grieve losses while keeping depression away, act in spite of anxiety, and improve relationships with themselves, others, and their God.

Greeting and refreshments are 5:30 - 6:00, the meeting is 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. We meet in the lower level St. Clare Auditorium, room "C." Believing in God is different than believing God. We are a group of young adults who strive to do both and live our lives as a response to God. Sacred Scripture is a privileged place to discover God speaking to us. The Catholic Church selects particular passages for each season and week of the year for our reflection. The young adults meet on Monday night to reflect together on the Sunday gospel so that we can hear what God is saying to each of us and how we are called to authentically respond to God in our unique life situation. You are always welcome to join us!

    Anxiety and
    Anger:
    The Challenge

    How we manage anxiety and anger affects the wear-and-tear of stress (allostatic load) on our health. Allostasis explains how stress may result in disease. It is the process of achieving and maintaining stability in our internal environment.
    (M. Groer)

    Repeated challenges, inability to adapt to repeated challenges, inability to end the allostatic responses after the stressor has been removed, and inability to produce an adequate allostatic response increases our allostatic load. (McEwen)

    Learn strategies to manage anxiety and anger to ease the wear-and-tear of daily hassles and life transitions in a chaotic world.

    Adlerian psychology is the most optimistic psychology. It’s not “everything is wonderful”. No, everything is not wonderful. Everything is lousy, but it only remains lousy when we do nothing about it. (Lydia Sicher, M.D., Ph.D., during World War I)


    In “(W)holiness” and Learning
    Adapted from St. Bonaventure

    January 23, 2017
    On the Corner of Anxiety and Anger
    Learn how anxiety and anger trigger each other. Don’t let fears and anger of being defective, vulnerable, taken advantage of, being pushed around, put down, rejected, etc. push around your sanity. How can more effectiveness and satisfaction result?

    February 6, 2017
    Anxiety and Anger In Intimacy
    Stop letting fear of losing control or rejection sabotage intimacy. Stop using sarcasm, gotcha’s, or little digs to substitute for managing anxiety and anger. Get more of your needs met. Don’t let triggers of little things ignite anger of the past.

    February 13, 2017
    Tips For Handling Awkward Situations
    How can you manage fear of embarrassment or humiliation? What is something to do in between avoidance and aggression? Learn how to prepare, and act in spite of anxiety or anger.

    February 27, 2017
    Feeling Stuck: Part One
    Don’t allow past failures, poor decisions, or missed opportunities make you unforgiving of yourself and cynical about life.




    March 13, 2017
    Feeling Stuck: Part Two
    Stop hanging on to resentments to people who have wronged you, held you back, betrayed your trust, or abandoned you.

    March 20, 2017
    Stop Creating Your Own Ceiling
    Discover how anxiety and anger create an enduring life pattern of your erection of an artificial ceiling. What interfering life patterns can you modify to help you go beyond your comfort zone? What would happen if you could push up the ceiling just a little more?

    Repair My House: Mind-Body-Soul Skills For the Journey, a psycho-educational-spiritual health-promotion and illness-prevention program, combines practical psychology with the life-giving ways of Francis of Assisi.

    Now in its 27th year, 880 programs have helped over 36,500 participants lower the wear-and-tear of stress (allostatic load), and increase Eudaimonia (Aristotle’s word for well-being/our best self: effectiveness + satisfaction). Participants make big mistakes smaller, increase self-confidence and self-efficacy, grieve losses while keeping depression away, act in spite of anxiety, and improve relationships with themselves, others, and their God.

    ONGOING BIBLE STUDY

    Are you looking for for a fun class to deepen your Biblical knowledge, increase your faith, bring you to a closer relationship with Christ, and make some friends along the way?
    This class might be just right for you!

    Join Jim Hawk, a cradle Catholic who left the Catholic Church for 28 years before discovering the fullness of truth of Catholicism, as we study the entire Bible book-by-book from a distinctly Catholic perspective. Along the way, we'll examine some of the apparent "contradictions" in Scripture, as well as the 3 words and the doctrines that can separate Christians.

    There will also be an opportunity for fellowship after each class at a nearby establishment.

    Meetings will be on Wednesdays from 5:30PM-7PM from September 16th through June in the Auditorium downstairs.
    You can join at any time of the year. And, BYOB. (Bring Your Own BIBLE!)
    Please contact Jim Hawk at jimhawk20@gmail.com for more information.

Believing in God is different than believing God. We are a group of young adults who strive to do both and live our lives as a response to God. Sacred Scripture is a privileged place to discover God speaking to us. The Catholic Church selects particular passages for each season and week of the year for our reflection. The young adults meet on Monday night to reflect together on the Sunday gospel so that we can hear what God is saying to each of us and how we are called to authentically respond to God in our unique life situation. You are always welcome to join us!
