How do we face and make sense of changes and diminishment in our later years.

As we get older we can gradually experience a series of ‘losses’ – an increase in health issues, a decrease in independence, some loss of ability to do what we used to do, loss of friends, possibly moving out of your home, loss of memory and so on.

How do we hold onto and deepen our true identity, allow loss to be part of our jigsaw, find new purposes and resilience in the context of this part of our spiritual and practical journey?

Join us online (tbc) for a short talk followed by time in break out groups to discuss and share with each other, closing with a reflection and prayer.

This is a partnership event organised by Leeds Church Institute and Growing Old Grace-fully.

Growing Old Grace-fully is a small Catholic charity with the mission that that older people experience spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing in positive and inclusive parish communities (especially across the Catholic Diocese of Leeds).

Leeds Church Institute is a faith based, charitable organisation which works through publications, events and social media to advance and deliver on its values and mission and be a progressive agent of change for the benefit of all in Leeds.
