Annual Seminar:

May 28, 8am-4pm; The Many Faces of Family. Our presenters will focus on the care of both the biological family and the adoptive family; the children as infants and as adults. We plan to come together and explore these and other issues of family formation and health. We hope to teach you to be clear in the work- the process begins with our very basic understanding of who God is; and our understanding of our own belief in HIS ongoing, loving control of our lives. So, do you as a parish/faith community nurse, health minister, community member, child of God want to learn about the physical, emotional, spiritual and relational issues in family formation? We welcome you and everyone who is interested in learning more about The Many Faces of Family. The brochure will be coming soon. CEUs are being pursued through Sacred Heart Hospital Staff Development Department.
