Seminar on spirituality and direction for retired Catholic physicians set for Nov. 18

A seminar titled “Redefining Retirement from Medicine as a Spiritual Journey: Finding New Purpose, New Meaning and New Directions, in Whatever Retirement May Bring” will be held at St. Elizabeth Seton Church, 10655 Haverstick Road, in Carmel, Ind., in the Lafayette Diocese, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Nov. 18.

As Catholics, the concept of retirement includes two crucial aspects: that the second half of life is the most spiritually fertile time for humans, and that when spiritual stirrings are combined with the wisdom of years, retirement can be an opportunity to live joyfully with purpose and meaning.

With that in mind, this seminar is designed for Catholic physicians considering retirement in the next 10 years or who have already retired, as well as their spouses. It provides an opportunity to learn how to make the most effective choices regarding the how, when, where and why of retirement transition.

The day includes sessions on life meaning and spirituality, an overview of the Christian Retirement Profile and ResiliencyScan, career reorientation, personal empowerment, present and future quality of life, respect for leisure, personal flexibility, home life, stewardship, connection opportunities and more.
