HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital is hosting a special community presentation on Spirituality, Addiction and Mental Health Wednesday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m. as part of this year’s Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence lecture series. The free event will take place at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital (900 West Clairemont Ave.) in the Monsignor Klimek Auditorium.

Attendees will learn the powerful role spirituality and empathy can have for those struggling with addiction and/or mental health challenges. It’s open to people in recovery, people who find themselves in the midst of addiction and/or mental health challenges, and family members who walk this journey with them. 

This event is made possible by the Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Endowment. Established in 2007 with the guidance of Monsignor Klimek, long-time HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital priest chaplain, the endowment is a means to honor and perpetuate his unique ministry by recognizing the importance of spirituality in healing.

“Father Klimek’s desire was to foster, inspire and motivate spiritual care to the sick, and help each of us realize the special role we can play in ministering to those around us,” said Mary Salm, director of spiritual care and mission integration at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital. “Each year, participants express gratitude for the unique message they receive from the lecture series.”

The event is free, but registration is required by calling 715-717-7300 or online at www.sacredhearteauclaire.org/Events-Classes. Refreshments will be provided.
