Grief Support Group for Adults

Posted on September 20, 2021 by Published by

 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

Our Lady of the Wayside Ministry of Bereavement offers a grief support program for adults. This six-week program is open to adult men & women parishioners who have suffered the loss of a spouse, parent, adult child or sibling through death.

“Companions on the Journey” – A Place and a Time to Heal

November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 & December 6

10am to 12pm in the Our Lady of the Wayside Parish Center

Gatherings will be held in one of the larger rooms of the Parish Ministry Center to allow for distancing. All masking protocols that are in place in November will be followed.

Even with deep faith, grief work is hard. People say you should be “over it by now,” but you are not; you may feel lonely, angry, depressed, overwhelmed or confused; others have gone back to their daily routines, but your life will never be the same. The goal of this group is to help you understand your feelings are normal; guide you in learning about the grief process; and give you a safe place to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a faith setting.

To register please do one of the following:

Call Kathy O’Neill at 224-518-1780, or email, or print out and complete this Grief Support Group Form and mail it to Kathy’s attention at OLW or drop it in the weekly collection basket.
