Following a two-year hiatus because of COVID precautions, the annual Sister Marilyn Schwab Memorial Lecture returns from 6 to 7:30 pm, Tuesday, Sept. 27. The lecture will be held in Agatha Hall at Queen of Angels Monastery, 840 S Main St. in Mount Angel.

Topic is “What’s a Family to Do When Dementia Impairs a Loved One’s Ability to Manage Finances?”

Expert presenters are Janell Neufeld, licensed clinical social worker at Providence Medical Group, and Jennifer Smith, elder law attorney with Sherman Sherman Johnnie & Hoyt.

Consistent with tradition, the Schwab Lecture is offered as a cooperative effort of the Benedictine Sisters of Mount Angel and Providence Benedictine Nursing Center as a gift back to the community that has supported these two nonprofits for so many years. There is no charge for admission.

Costs of putting on the lecture — including topic-related informational handouts, refreshments and light snacks — have been covered by Maps Community Foundation, the philanthropic branch of Maps Credit Union.

The lecture highlights Sister Marilyn Schwab’s legacy of innovation, inspiration and wellness. Under her leadership, the Benedictine Nursing Center (now Providence Benedictine Nursing Center) became a national leader renowned for progressive and compassionate care. Sister Marilyn also served as prioress of the Benedictine Sisters, leaving a legacy of loving service to her community and to others.
