Are you interested in some of the deeper issues of life? The Spirituality Committee is in its 12th year of exploring issues such as friendship, loss, aging, grief, resiliency, healing, and more. To facilitate the exploration of these topics, they have traditionally planned and delivered an annual face-to-face conference (more recently online) looking at some aspect of the spiritual journey of aging.

This committee of engaged individuals is seeking new leadership at the helm. Ideally, we are looking for someone who is interested in how spirituality evolves as we age. We are particularly interested in creative people who can work with us to plan, develop, and implement some new educational events. If you are a spiritual individual who enjoys leadership and event planning, we’d love to hear from you! Please send an email to our Director of Community Development, Roch Pilon, at [email protected].

Est-ce que les questions plus profondes dans la vie vous intéressent? Depuis près de 12 ans, le Comité sur la spiritualité explore des questions comme l’amitié, la perte, le vieillissement, le deuil, la résilience et la guérison. Pour faciliter l’exploration de ces sujets, il a traditionnellement organisé et tenu une conférence annuelle en personne (et dernièrement en ligne) pour examiner un aspect du cheminement spirituel qui accompagne le vieillissement.

Ce comité composé de personnes engagées est à la recherche d’un nouveau fer de lance. Idéalement, il voudrait recruter une personne qui s’intéresse à la façon dont la spiritualité évolue avec l’âge. Il est tout particulièrement en quête de personnes créatives qui peuvent travailler avec lui pour planifier, élaborer et mettre en place de nouvelles activités éducatives.

Si vous êtes une personne spirituelle que le leadership et la planification d’événements intéressent, faites-nous signe! Nous vous serions reconnaissants d’écrire à notre directeur du Développement communautaire, Roch Pilon, à [email protected].
