At 6:00pm we shall gather in the Cathedral for worship then enjoy a light meal together.
Our speakers will discuss how their professional, personal and faith journeys have informed each other. We challenge you to reflect upon your own journey.
Everyone is welcome. We particularly invite anyone dealing on a personal or professional level with stress in providing care, in needing care, in balancing values with responsibilities. We reach out a hand of support and welcome to volunteers, to family caregivers, to workers in health care, social services, harm reduction, ministry… to anyone wishing to explore the healing effects of spirituality.
On this the Feast of St Luke we offer the church’s gifts of healing to the city. May this be an evening to foster healing, renewal, connectivity, and resilience. You and your life make a difference. We meet in the presence of God, the ultimate source of all healing.
