About our Death Café Host
" My experiences with death and walking alongside my dad in his dying transformed my life. I am now a pastor and a spiritual care giver because I have come to understand all of life as a journey towards the transition from mortality to immortality."
I am proud to host Death Cafes at St Peter's as a means of bringing this difficult topic for conversation out into the open, where those with questions and experiences they might need to share can have a safe space to talk, where the conversation might be facilitated in a healthy way, and through this dialogue, our community be better equipped, person by person, to face the unavoidable encounter with death - whether our own or of a loved one, whether expected or unexpected - with compassion and a knowing that we walk this journey in common humanity - we all walk this journey at some point."
About our Death Café Facilitator
