Starting in November 2023 Bishop Neary will have monthly visits for the Area Catholic Communities (ACCs), in groups of 3-4 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. During this visit each ACC will give a short presentation.

Mental health ministry is not about solving someone’s problems, but rather listening and accompanying individuals on their journey.
