CAMARILLO – On the first four Tuesdays in May, Padre Serra Parish, 5205 Upland Road, will present Care & Prepare: A Series on End of Life, at 7pm in the Serra Center.
“What is Church teaching about the difficult choices that can occur near the end of life? How can I best care for my loved one and myself? What documents are important to have in place and why? Who do I call after my loved one dies? How can my parish help?”
Illness and death are difficult to discuss; understanding the options can help.
Sponsored by the the parish Adult Faith Formation team & Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association, this four-part series will have professionals in health care and the Church sharing their knowledge of what to expect when a person nears the natural end of life, how to provide compassionate care, and what steps can be taken in the preparation for and upon death. Each session is independent.
“Come for one, two, or all four. Ideal for your planning or helping a loved one.”
