November 17-19, 2017
Are you 65 or older? Care for someone who is 65 or older? Care about someone who is 65 or older in your meeting? This is an opportunity for ARCH Vistors, other members of the extended ARCH network, members (or emeritus members) of the Committee on Aging Concerns, and ARCH staff to get together for a weekend or renewal, re-invigoration, and resources. We will deepen connections with each other and our shared ministry of care and compassion, vulnerability and trust, stewardship and healthy boundaries.
We are all again - it is what we do! But we don't have to do it alone.
Substantial scholarship funds are available, please request them.
