Our next Gathering will be on Wednesday, July 25th, and will center on "Effective Self-Care: Ten Things You Can Do." Our Presenter is Nancy Schongalla-Bowman, PTS Director of Student Counseling. A 1979 PTS alumna, Nancy is a trained Marriage and Family Therapist who has also served in parish and chaplaincy roles. In August, Nancy will be in S.
