How To Change When You Can’t Change
Why don’t New Year’s resolutions, exercise plans, and diets work to change bad habits? Why does science say it takes 2 months to change a destructive habit and how can it take less? What can I do to recover “the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference”?

We will look at what the Gospel and science says about what helps those who change successfully.

(1-to-1 Spiritual Direction as well as the celebration of the Eucharist in the Roman Rite are included in the programme.)

Dates & Times: Friday, 31 May (7.30pm) - Sunday, 2 June 2019 (5pm)

Contribution: $270 (non-AC), $330 (AC)

(Update - 18 May: We are fully subscribed for this programme. Please contact us if you'd like to be placed on our waiting list.)
