Sharing Christ's love by meeting human needs
The group's aim is to enrich the care-giving experience as we open our ears and hearts to others during difficult times in the life of a caregiver. They meet monthly in an effort to provide an opportunity to grow in tolerance, patience, compassion and understanding the limitless power of love, as we value the gift
If you are or have been a caregiver or know of someone who would like to encourage, support, share helpful hints and give hope to others on their caregiving journey - this is the support group for you. We meet in a relaxed atmosphere where you can talk freely with other caregivers sharing your thoughts, fears and apprehensions and know you are not alone.
Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 1:00 PM in the Church Library.
