Are you an older person? Do you care for an older family member or friend? Do you care about someone who is older in your meeting? Do you want to help dismantle ageism in our culture?” This is an opportunity for ARCH Visitors, other members of the extended ARCH network, members (or emeritus members) of the Committee on Aging Concerns, and ARCH staff to get together for a weekend of renewal, re-invigoration, and resources. We will deepen connections with each other and our shared ministry of care and compassion, vulnerability and trust, stewardship and healthy boundaries.
We are all aging – it is what we do! But we don’t have to do it alone.
Substantial scholarship funds are available, please ask for them.
