Ethical and Spiritual Discernment in the Face of Illness or Injury

November 4 @ 6:00 pm November 6 @ 1:00 pm

Presented by Dr. John Stys

For many of us, it’s uncomfortable to think about ourselves and our loved ones getting older and increasingly frail. While it’s easy to get caught up in our society’s fear and anxiety, we have an alternative. We can find comfort not only in Christian thought, but also in our ability to use our human reason and intellect to work through common and well understood ethical and spiritual issues when faced with declining health.

During this weekend retreat, participants will explore Ignatian discernment of spirits, decision-making in ethically and emotionally challenging healthcare scenarios, and confronting the universal human fears related to advancing age and declining physical and cognitive function.

Dr. John Stys still likes to consider himself a “son of Ignatius,” having been a vowed member of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) for many years. That experience, as well as formation as a professed Secular Franciscan, has guided his thought and operational work as a hospice and palliative care senior executive and university educator.

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00. The retreat concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.
