Holy Family Chapel (formerly St. Joseph's Chapel)
Breakfast following Mass in the St. Mary's Cafeteria
 
GUEST SPEAKER
Andrew Oberle '04
 
Attacked by chimpanzees at a sanctuary in 2012,  Andrew has had over 25 surgeries. His experience helped launch a trauma care program called The Oberle Institute at Saint Louis University Hospital. 

The institute collects a "trauma response team" of people who don't normally work together: a chaplain, dog therapist, professional counselor, music therapist, social worker, trauma nurse, plastic surgeon, and occupational therapist. They'll address not just the physical injuries, says Oberle, but also the spiritual meaning, not faith or religion, but mental health and outlook. "If your spirits are high, you'll have such an easier time dealing with the other parts of recovery."

Tickets are available online at www.smhsaa.com.
$10 per person
