Ministry and Council Retreat Rescheduled for Sunday, March 3, 2019 Coldstream Meetinghouse

Please note that the retreat has been postponed from February 24 due to the possibility of adverse weather. It has been rescheduled for Sunday March 3rd.

This year we have planned a day where we can expand upon areas of death and dying that were not covered in our Half Year Meeting program “What does Dying Well Mean to Me?”

This workshop will be a source of information that will be useful to you personally and it will be information that we as a Meeting community can use to assist others as they face the end of life situations .

What do we need to know about the funeral/after life process so that we can put our affairs in order?

What are alternative funerals and burials?

What are the traditions, Quaker and Christian, around death, and where did they come from

Our presenter: Shannon Calvert

Shannon is an end-of-life educator and support person, with extensive knowledge of alternatives to common end of life practices surrounding death and burial.
