Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service to facilitate end-of-life planning session

Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service’s deputy director, Susan Francis, will facilitate a discussion about estate planning and advance health care directives at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church on Sunday, Feb. 25. The presentation begins at 11:45 a.m. at 200 Main St. in New Windsor.

According to an MVLS press release, the program is made available by the Maryland Department of Health to educate faith communities about end-of-life planning through the Maryland Faith Health Network.

The program is expected to reach upwards of 500 congregants and community members during the lifespan of the funding opportunity, according to the release.

“All too often when an advance directive is not in place, families must pour their attention into potential conflicts with family members instead of focusing on mourning the loss of a loved one,” said Francis in a prepared statement.

“It’s important to learn the intricacies of end-of-life planning, which is why we are excited to participate in MFHN’s new program.”
