Being Present through the End – Online

Sunday Morning Coffee Talk with Kirsten DeLeo
Sunday 5 February, 10am to 12pm (Irish Time)

At some point in our lives, most of us will find ourselves in the presence of someone who is facing death — a family member, friend, neighbour, or patient. What can we say or do when nothing can be done? How can we be most helpful? The session will include time for your questions.

We look forward to seeing you on-line!
