Caregiving is an incredibly challenging role. Oftentimes, caregivers find that they are stressed, fatigued and burned out.

The Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market St., will offer a weekend retreat focused on holistic self-care and ways to build resilience in the midst of caregiving Oct. 11-12.

Paul Kisho Stern and Trish Johnson of Manitou Center in Winona, Minnesota, will present “Mindful Self-Care for the Caregiver.” The retreat starts at 7 p.m. Friday and continues until 4 p.m. Saturday.
