A Time to be Born, A Time to Die

Turn, turn, turn – for everything there is a season.

by Sara Vogt

A time to be born and a time to die – in both of these times, the love and support of our families make our journeys more complete. Today’s feature is about end-of-life care and how the Samaritan House has been helping families since its founding in 1998. Daria Guelig and Jackie Murphy shared about their experiences with the families they assisted while volunteering. They also spoke about the opportunity to become a volunteer and be a part of the hospitality and comfort offered at the Samaritan House.

Who can volunteer? “Anyone with a willing heart,” says Guelig. “There is a misconception that one needs to be in the medical field to be a volunteer. That’s not true, we have volunteers from all walks of life.”

To learn more about supporting our families during end life care, join The Steering Committee of the Samaritan House of Wellsboro on Sunday, April 27th at 3 pm at St. Peter’s Parish Center. The guest speaker will be Dr. Ed Guelig with a presentation entitled “Issues in End Life Care.” To learn more, visit http://www.stpeterswellsboro.org/samaritan-house/ or call 570-404-2180.
