Caring and Carrying on Through Cancer | Presented by CanCare
Saturday, September 28, 2019 | 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. 
Christ the King Lutheran Church
2353 Rice Blvd., Houston 

As caring communities, we are all touched by cancer, either through a loved one’s diagnosis or certainly within our congregations.   Come hear about cancer’s effect on body, mind and spirit, and learn ways we as Community of Hope lay chaplains can better support our loved ones and through the cancer experience.  This free workshop is being tailored by CanCare for our Community of Hope lay pastoral caregivers, but is open to ALL interested persons. Please RSVP to Beverly Davis to help us in planning.
