Have you been dealing with cancer or another serious illness?
When we receive a diagnosis of a very serious illness, our physical needs become heightened. The same is true of our emotional and spiritual needs though that fact is sometimes overlooked to the detriment of the whole.
There are some things we can do for ourselves to address the shortage of attention to our emotional and spiritual life, as well as the physical.
Come spend an hour and a half with Sister Kathleen Osbelt and Kristin Barrett-Anderson and take some time to address ideas toward a more complete care for yourself.
Sr. Kathleen Osbelt is a Franciscan Sister who has worked with those who are dying at Francis House for 30 years. She is a chaplain and spiritual director.
Kristin Barrett-Anderson is the Director of the Saint Marianne Cope Shrine & Museum, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis. She is the creator of Empathy in Action; a collection of programs addressing current issues, with the intention of teaching empathetic practices to use in all phases of life's journey.
