HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are hosting two speakers from the Henri Nouwen Society for two special events Tuesday, April 30, as part of this year’s Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence lecture series. The first event is a ministry breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital (900 West Clairemont Ave.) in the Monsignor Klimek Auditorium. The second event is a community presentation at 7 p.m. at The Florian Gardens (2340 Lorch Ave.). Both events are free.
These inspiring presentations – drawn from the writings of Henri Nouwen, internationally renowned pastor, author and professor – will address the critical importance of self-care for caregivers. Attendees will learn to identify the challenges and gifts of caregiving, while discovering spiritual practices and techniques to nurture inner life. Listen and grow with confidence as you realize a new way of looking at care and the human journey – a transition that can bring real joy and celebration.
These events are made possible by the Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Endowment of the HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation. Established in 2007 with the guidance of Monsignor Klimek, 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 Ann Kaiser, director of the HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation. “Each year, participants express gratitude for the unique message they receive from the lecture series. You don’t want to miss this.”
These events are free, but registration is required by calling 715-717-6565 or online at https://Giving.HSHS.org/Register.
