A Morning for Moms : on forgiveness and the attainment of happiness

February 23rd, 2019

Experts say that forgiving those who have wronged us helps lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and heart rate. The benefits aren't just limited to the physical, either. Letting go of old grudges is known to reduce levels of depression, anxiety, and anger. People who forgive tend to have better relationships, be more optimistic, and overall, enjoy better psychological well-being.

Mastering the Rules of the Money Game 

On November 12, Walnut Grove sponsored a financial education workshop. We learned how to turn our monthly paycheck into millions of dollars!!! Well, sort of...  During the event, we heard that paying yourself first, and not losing money are two key components of growing wealth. In a

fabulous talk hosted by our own Karla Yasciano and guest speaker, Miriam Ireton, the participants gained expertise in how to use financial vehicles to make the most of what they have...and maybe even make millions!!!

Opus Dei 90th Anniversary

     On Sunday, September 30th, friends and family from all over Southern California joined in a family picnic to celebrate Opus Dei’s 90th anniversary.  This fun family event was held at Lacy Park in San Marino.  Guests were welcomed with colorful decorations (including giant golden “90” balloons!), delicious desserts, a welcoming picture of founder Saint Josemaría, and the camaraderie and cheer of a true family reunion. 

     Young and old enjoyed the convivial atmosphere beneath the Sycamore trees - catching up with old friends, meeting new faces, and trading tales of first encounters with the Work all across the globe.  Informative remarks reminded all of the variety of programs currently available for formation, as well as the exciting prospect of a future shrine to Our Lady of Fairest Love in the Los Angeles area.  A special blessing arrived towards the end in the form of a brief rain shower to cool us off in the heat!  Special thanks to Amanda Matranga, Dora Olaiz, Julia Boles, and Carol DeTesanos Pinto for coordinating this happy event.
