Care & Prepare: Finding Loving Care at the End of Life is a parish workshop put on by the Office of Life, Justice & Peace in parishes throughout the Archdiocese. Discussion topics include Church teaching on end of life ethics, accessing quality palliative care, hospice care and advance healthcare directives, and pastoral care at the end of life. These trainings are great for parish leaders, caregivers, and the elderly and their family members.
To schedule Care & Prepare at your parish for free, please contact Lauren Stadelman by emailing LStadelman@la-archdiocese.org or calling (213) 637- 7646.
