The Joy of Pastoral Ministry Workshop at Villa Maria del Mar, Santa Cruz
This Joy of Pastoral Ministry workshop, a year in the making, fulfilled a dream for spiritual outreach at the Villa. It was designed by Lois MacGillivray, SNJM and Molly Neville, SNJM, who also coordinated it. Intended for busy pastoral ministers, it integrated theology, spirituality, psychology and discernment skills for personal and professional growth.
Retreat participants with Bishop Richard Garcia, Diocese of Monterey, who presented Certificates of Participation at a Mass of Thanksgiving.
