Older Adults Ministry presents Empowering Family Caregivers Educational Series

Jun 29 4:00p - 5:00p Older Adults Ministry

Corpus Christi is beginning an Older Adults Ministry to help serve our older adults and their family members. We plan to have monthly communication in our church bulletin about relevant education and resources, as well as information on monthly or quarterly events in Ahwatukee area.

Father Chad supports our efforts to initiate this ministry by having the Foundation for Senior Living (FSL) present an educational series entitled "Empowering Family Caregivers." FSL has received a grant from a national Catholic Foundation that makes it possible to bring the caregiver series to Catholic parishes at no cost to us.

The first monthly session is coming up on Thu, Jun 29 from 4:00-5:00pm in rooms 7 & 8. See below for more information.

Please contact Vicki McAllister at 602-397-3708 to RSVP.
