Sunday, Jan. 20
Palliative Care Presentation, Concord -- Palliative care is often misunderstood. It is sometimes thought to be exclusively for people who are receiving hospice care at the end of their lives. Palliative care, however, is a comprehensive approach to care for those with serious illness, and includes support for their loved ones, too. It is a way for people to live better, entirely consistent with Catholic teaching. Come hear a presentation and join in a discussion at Holy Family Parish, 12 Monument Square, at 6:00 p.m. The event is presented by the Archdiocese of Boston's Initiative for Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning.

Wednesday, Jan. 23
