The Convenings Save The Date

Coming in May: The Convenings: Real Families. Real Choices. Real Life.

Posted on April 07, 2017

Save the date, and plan to join broadcast journalist Cathy Wurzer and special guests for an evening of music, storytelling and meaningful conversation about living and dying well. 

May 9, 2017
St. Dominic Church (104 Linden Street North, Northfield)
6:30 to 8 p.m.

The Convenings is based on a series of remarkable broadcast conversations Wurzer had with University of St. Thomas Dean Bruce Kramer, and their book, We Know How This Ends: Living While Dying. Kramer died in 2015 after living with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

The Convenings is presented by Honoring Choices Minnesota and the Bruce Kramer Collaborative, and is sponsored locally by the Northfield Advance Care Planning Advisory Council.
