Introducing a new ministry for Orthodox Young Married Couples with the collaboration of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco Family Wellness Ministry and the Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministries.

Join us for an open forum for young married couples to gain insight and helpful tools that will cultivate “wellness” in their marriages and family life.

The Summer Series will be offered once a month on Thursdays, June 18, July 16, and August 20, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. PST on Zoom.

George Papageorge MFT, Director of the Metropolis Family Wellness Ministry will share insights from his 30 years of counseling couples. The discussion will be facilitated by Johanna Duterte Carter, Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministries. All together, young married couples will connect, interact, and learn practical principles for healthy communication and conflict resolution.

Discussion topics include:

  • What role does “self awareness” play in talking skills?
  • What role does “empathy” play in listening skills?
  • What communication tool box did I inherit from my family of origin?
  • The vital role of having “differences”
  • Dispelling the myth that good marriages are conflict-free.
