Anglican Retreat: End of Life & Funerals
Dates: March 12, 2021 - March 13, 2021
Due to the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, safety protocols require that this retreat be conducted online, via Zoom technology.
PURPOSE: Participants will be invited to examine their experience and beliefs regarding death in light of the fact that, as clergy, or chaplains, they will often be dealing with people whose understanding and experience of death may be very different than their own. They will be challenged to reflect on and express what they believe about death, afterlife, redemption, and the role of God. They will explore ways of understanding, caring for and supporting people in the face of their loss so they may be able to give meaningful expression to it in the form of the funeral liturgy.
PREREQUISITES: Restricted to Anglican M.Div. students and students in the DADS program for diaconal postulants, unless by special permission of the Instructor.
