Description

Dr. Megory Anderson will give a talk on the Sacred Presence with the Dying during the 9am & the 11am Eucharist at St. Paul's Angflican Church located at 1130 Jervis Street, Vancouver (Jervis and Pendrell Streets).

Dr. Megory Anderson is an expert in end of life studies. She is a theologian, educator, and author of the books Sacred Dying: Creating Rituals for Embracing the End of Life and Attending the Dying, as well as numerous articles and chapters on death and dying.

In 1996, she founded the not-for-profit Sacred Dying Foundation, which is headquartered in San Francisco. Megory is a vibrant presence as a speaker, celebrated for her ability to share her knowledge and skills: to connect with, educate, and train end-of-life caregivers and professionals from diverse medical, religious, and cultural backgrounds.

Megory is a Research Fellow at the University of Winchester in the UK, and an Adjunct and sometimes Professor at the University of San Francisco and University of California, Berkeley. She holds a doctorate in theology of death and dying at Canterbury Christ Church, Canterbury, England.

Megory has a rich personal history in religion and theology, formerly as an Anglican monastic in New York and then as a theological and comparative religion scholar.

Everyone is also invited to attend the fellowship coffee and tea after each services in the Church Hall (lower level).

This is FREE. You can choose to attend either the 9am or the 11am service or both (which ever you prefer); however, we request that you register.
