Passages…

a natural part of life
Tuesdays, February 20 through March 20 from 6:30-8:00 PM in the social center
Our Lenten series, entitled Passages…a natural part of life, is a five-week series dealing with a variety of topics.  It is open to hearing your concerns and helping you plan as it provides information from the parish and the wider community concerning pastoral care offered to you and your loved ones at times of particular need.  It addresses such topics as illness at any age, grief, bereavement, and the many issues associated with death and the dying  process, including advance directives, power of attorney, living wills, and how we celebrate liturgy in the church. Passages is relevant to people of all ages,  since aside from the unexpected circumstances of life, many of us also care for children and aging loved ones.
