Care for the Caregiver

September 25, 2017 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
A Day of Reflection for Men & Women

Retreat Title: Care for the Caregiver

If you are in a care-giving role or ministry, either personal or professional, Bellarmine invites you to come for a relaxing, restful, restorative day planned with you in mind.  The day will offer prayer, some suggestions on self-care, Mass, optional time for sharing, and time for resting in the Lord.  Since you give so much of yourself, this day is designed to minister to you to be a receiver of care, grace, and spiritual nourishment.  

Program Cost: This event is free, courtesy of The Retirement Research Foundation. Free will donations accepted. (includes Lunch)

Please call the office at 847-381-1261 to register for this retreat.
