Archdiocese of Boston Initiative for Palliative Care & Advance Care Planning

Palliative Care is often misunderstood.  It’s often thought that it’s for dying patients or people in hospice at the end of their lives.  Instead it is better understood as a model of care that benefits anyone, at any time, who is diagnosed with a serious illness.

Diane McCarthy, the new Parish Education Coordinator for this initiative, and a board certified chaplain, will offer a presentation on this topic at St. Bridget Parish.

Date: October 19th

Time: 7PM

Place: St. Bridget School Hall
