St. Teresa of Calcutta, (“Mother Teresa”), revered for her tireless work with the sick and dying, offered a short writing called “A Simple Path” to describe her mission and approach to caring for others. She named the qualities of silence, prayer, faith, love, service, and peace as integral to the work of caring, believing that
practicing any of these qualities leads naturally into the others in a life-enhancing process of transformation. As caregivers, we know that there are many physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges to be met as we journey alongside and care for those we love.

In this six-week workshop and support group, we will explore the concepts named for us by Mother Teresa. We will also find validation, renewal, and support for dealing with the difficult yet vital tasks of caregiving.

Six Saturdays: April 6, 13, 20, and 27 May 4, and 11, 2024
