Each generation has the obligation to transfer their heritage of faith through the stories, life experiences and wisdom handed down to them by their ancestors. How can we help the elder fulfill their obligation? Whether you are an older adult, a religious leader, a health professional, or just interested in the topic, this workshop will give you a deeper insight into creating intergenerational relationships.
