This workshop will help everyone understand how to spend an hour with vulnerable people. With greater confidence you’ll be able to seek volunteer opportunities at hospitals, long term care facilities, or parish based groups. Now more than ever, we can help foster a culture that is more open to life.
The Dying Healed Program does not aim to replace the volunteer programs of the various institutions that exist for elderly or disabled patients, or those in long-term care, palliative or hospice care. In this regard, the program is a “pre-training” program giving formation and knowledge on end-of-life issues, understanding of human suffering, human dignity and the power of human presence.
The following panel will lead the interactive workshop:
- Fr. Jude Iloghalu, Chaplain at Vancouver General Hospital
- Natalie Sonnen, Executive Director at Life Canada
- Annabelle Chong, Executive Director at Vancouver’s Life Community
Each participant will receive a workbook and refreshments are included. Please bring a bagged lunch.
Saturday, April 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church Hall. To register, visit https://lifecollective.io/vancouver or contact 604-733-6266. Cost: $15/person, please pay at the door.
Please note: This workshop will be held in Vancouver and is identical to the one held on April 8th, on the North Shore.
