Living Fully, Preparing for Death – a symposium for faith leaders

Thursday, May 2, 12–4 p.m., Anshei Israel, 5550 E. 5th Street, Tucson

Interfaith Community Services and the Southwest Folklife Alliance are putting together a symposium for leaders in congregations around helping the people they serve to consider their life, their mortality, and their planning for the kind of care they would want near the end of their life.  We’re doing this as part of the Arizona End of Life Care Partnership (  It’s open to anyone interested in building awareness and confidence in addressing this aspect of life. 

We’re looking forward to inspirational learning and lively (pun intended) conversation, as well as breaking bread together.  We’ll hear from and converse with practitioners in various faith traditions, learn practicalities of advance care planning, and gain understanding of hospice care.
