Caring for Body and Soul

“It wasn’t until I attended the Caring for Body and Soul workshop that I made the connection between my physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.”- 2018 Participant

This open women’s group was established in early 2016 to provide a time and place for women to support one another on their shared journey to serenity, health, and God.  We meet twice monthly, at 6:30 A.M., at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church in Hyattsville, MD.


“‘Your Path’ helped me so much! I learned how to relax when I feel sad or upset. I had a pretty good diet before, but got rid of soda and am drinking more water and eating more fruits and vegetables. I am so grateful for this program.” - 2018 Participant

"YOUR PATH," is a concentrated 6 to 8-week program designed for individuals who suffer and want to feel better and even transform their lives. If you suffer from chronic illness, pain, obesity, stress or anxiety, and are willing to make a commitment to follow a new and better path, this is for you. This program takes place in Hyattsville, MD.

  • Next program planned for fall 2019 (dates to be determined). Plus, we are hoping to offer it online in the near future!

  • Contact Serenity and Health and we’ll keep you posted when a new in-person or online session is planned.
