Trinity and St. Francis Episcopal Churches will host a series of educational forums this fall aimed at equipping individuals and families to discuss and prepare for ‘the inevitable’. Starting Wednesday, October 14th at 7PM at Trinity, participants will engage in presentations, conversations, and Q&A sessions each Wednesday night for 6 weeks. Led by the Rev. Matthew Scott, Trinity and St. Francis’ vicar, the classes will focus on the many practical decisions that surround death and dying, as well as some theological and ethical concerns. To help us engage more deeply, presenters including attorney Andrea Stapleford, funeral director Mike Lewis, and hospice workers Lisa To and Ellen Scalise will join us during sessions that focus on their specialties.
“The only real mistake is to avoid talking about these topics, as we will have to face them one way or the other. Better to do it with information, courage, and most importantly the trust and hope that our faith provides us,” says Father Matthew.
The classes are open to all, regardless of faith or denomination. Please call the office to reserve a space and info packet at 723-9360 or email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
