The five-week grief support workshop “Grieving with Great Hope” will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, Feb. 9 through March 9, at St. Mary Parish, 127 N. Monroe St.
Opening and closing sessions are in the church; others are in the Parish Life Center.
“Healing is an intentional process, where we gather together as a community of faith to become disciples of hope,” said the church. “It is through prayerful reflection, practical learning and personal fellowship that we mourn and, in mourning, we begin to build our bridge to a new and different life.”
Presenters will include the Rev. David Burgard from St. Mary, and John and Sandy O’Shaughnessy from Good Mourning Ministry, a Catholic bereavement apostolate. Rupp, Allore-Martenson, Bacarella and Merkle Funeral Homes will offer support.
All who are grieving are welcome.
A freewill offering of $20 is requested to cover materials and the program.
