Join us May 21, as Joan Olson invites us to explore the important topic of spirituality at the end of life. With our aging population, many of us will be companioning people who are facing the end of their lives. Drawing on her experience as a hospice and palliative care chaplain and as a spiritual director, Joan will guide us through important considerations: What issues come up as death approaches? What might we need to pay attention to in our own lives? And what might we learn from those who have walked this path?

The Groundings programs are a collaboration with Sacred Ground, Loyola Spirituality Center and Ignatian Spirituality Center.
