Advance Planning Workshop

March 4, 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Would you like to feel better prepared for the future?  Join us on Saturday, March 4 from 9:30 am-1:00 pm for a fun and interactive advance planning workshop.  Funeral Director Amy Cunningham will discuss creating a plan for your funeral that matches your vision and your budget. Thanatologist Matilda Garrido will discuss what kinds of paperwork and documentation you should have (including health care directives), leaving an ethical legacy, and Swedish Death Cleaning. Attorney Kathleen Higgins will discuss wills and trusts (the differences, and why you might need one over the other), powers of attorney, and answer questions you might have. Light refreshments will be served and handouts will be available.  Additionally, if you have advance planning documents you need witnessed and notarized, please feel free to bring them. Advance registration is necessary (no later than Thursday, March 2, please) so we can be sure we have enough food and handouts for everyone. Email parishoffice@gracebrooklyn.org to sign up.

If you have questions, please email matilda.garrido@gmail.com.  ‘Repeat Offenders’ welcome!
