Day of Prayer and Care October 22

Caregiving is Pro-Life!

“Some of you are in especially difficult situations if your spouse faces terminal cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, or other serious illness. . . . We thank you for this witness and pledge the Church’s support as you continue to live out your commitment.”  —United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Blessings of Age


day-of-prayer-and-careMost of us know of someone who is involved in providing care for a family member, a neighbor, or friend.  That someone may be you.  Caregivers often describe their service as simply “doing what needs to be done.”  However, the hours spent caring can leave little time for relaxation, spiritual renewal or connecting with others.  Parish volunteers and Advocates in the Cumberland/Perry Deanery parishes are planning the 3nd Annual Day of Prayer and Care to honor these very special men and women on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the Saint Patrick Church Parish Activity Center, Carlisle.

Please share this announcement with caregivers you know.  There is no cost for the day, but registration will be required.  Learn more and register online here:
