Time: 9:00-4:00
Location: Lecture Hall at Carey Centre
Cost: $60/person includes lunch 
Presenters: Dr. Paul Stevens and Dr. Paul Pearce 


In this conference, we will consider reframing retirement as a positive experience. We will ask whether we are supposed to work until we die, and how we should work, taking into consideration how we discern our calling for the rest of our lives.
Join us for a day of learning, dialogue and sharing of insights and resources through lectures and workshops on Reframing Retirement. Our goal for this conference is to gain:
    Seeing the middle and later years of life as a process of maturing that provides new opportunities for discovering how to live more fully.
  • HOPE
    Recognizing that faith enables us to see an ultimate future that builds on the past and informs our desire for living meaningfully in the present.
    Listening to discover a refined sense of life purpose and renewed vocation and an awareness of the importance of self care and service for and alongside others in community.
    Appreciating that the process of aging is part of our spiritual journey in which we can change and be more thoughtful and intentional in our maturing — to become whole persons, growing in our connections with God, with others, and with all of Creation.
