Join us for a time of respite for caregivers to refresh body and spirit, learn ways of balance and self-care, and draw on the support of others who share this privileged call. Serving people with chronic illness or disabilities is a rewarding endeavor but often places extreme demands on the caregivers. They can become overwhelmed by stress, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.
This retreat is for professionals working in hospitals, health care, human services, nursing, hospice or anyone in a care giving role of the sick or elderly.
Participants will discuss common issues, share ideas, identify the degree to which they are taking care of their own well-being, and determine ways to improve their self-care skills. Whether you are a professional caregiver or a family-member of friend providing care to a loved-one you will benefit greatly from attending this program.
Father John Collins is a Redemptorist priest whose ministerial background includes parish and retreat work, spiritual direction and counseling/psychotherapy, and pastoral work in health care and higher education. He currently serves on the retreat staff of San Alfonso Retreat House in Long Branch, N.J.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
