Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church Family Wellness Ministry initiative exists to strengthen and develop families into healthy, resilient, and supported members of our Church and the world, and to meet and address the “wellness” needs of our community.
The Family Wellness Ministry started in 2008 as a pilot program for the San Francisco Diocese, inspired by Metropolitan Gerasimos
Since its inception we have had an overwhelming response from the community in a number of programs and seminars we have been able to present: including Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University
, Marriage and Family Relationship Seminars, Building Church Community through Fellowship, The Give Back Group
, Holy Grounds Book Group and coming this Fall a new program on Grief called Cloud of Witnesses.
“When grace is with us, we do not see the defects of others;
We only see the sufferings and the love or our brethren.” Archimandrite Sophrony
“Take heed, then, often to come together to give thanks to God, and show forth His praise.
For when you assemble frequently in the same place, the powers of Satan are destroyed, and the
Destruction at which he aims is prevented by the unity of your faith.” St, Ignatios of Antioch, 2nd century
The Family Wellness Ministry at Holy Apostles consists of many dynamic groups and studies.
