16th Annual Women’s Gathering
We are sad to announce that this year’s event has been canceled to ensure everyone’s safety during the COVID-19 crisis. Please watch for more information regarding the 2021 Women’s Gathering coming SOON!
With the cancellation of the Women’s Gathering, what should be a day of celebration and camaraderie is instead a ay of solitude and silance. Since we can’t be together today, Elizabeth Murphy has graciously offered a brief reflection of the day, sharing how she stays mentally and spiritually strong, and kindly asking for your continued support of spiritual care at Rogers.
2,000 reasons to continue your support…
Last year, funds raised at the Women’s Gathering allowed patients at Rogers to receive almost 2,000 spiritually focused interactions from our chaplains, including group sessions, individual consulations, and on-site ecumenical services.
Today, we are asking for your help in sustaining spiritual care resources for patients at Rogers. Thank to our spiritual care matching gift donors who have chosen to continue their pledges, your gifts to spiritual care will be doubled!*
