Lent at St. Mark's
 

“Thou Art Dust”: Conversations about the End of Life


During Lent, the faithful are called to prepare themselves for eternal life, beginning with the admonition of Ash Wednesday that “Thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return” and finishing with the Good News of Resurrection, making it an appropriate time to prepare to have critical conversations about aging and end-of-life with our families.  We’ll frame the conversation with Dr. Atul Gawande’s book “Being Mortal” and resources from The Conversation Project, and include time to discuss what we are reading in each session.


Feb. 21, 5-6:30 p.m. Soup Supper included. 

Talking about Death: Discussing end-of-life wishes with those we love. 

Speaker: Timothy Duff, Chaplain at Emerson Hospital


Feb. 28, 5-6:30 p.m. Soup Supper included. 

Is it Time? Talking about what comes next when independent living is no longer an option. 

Speaker: Nick Gilbert, chaplain, pastor, and geriatric care manager. 


Mar. 6, 5-6:30 p.m. Soup Supper included. 

Saying Good-bye: Planning for a Funeral Before It’s Necessary. 

Speaker: Healy Funeral Home


Mar. 13, 5-6:30 p.m. Soup Supper included. 

Final Conversations: A chance to reflect on what we’ve learned from our speakers and our book.

Rev. Suzanne Wade, facilitator.


Rev. Suzanne will be available for one-on-one conversation and prayer at the church on these Sundays 3-5 p.m.
