Grief Support for Adults – Fall 2023
“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 and 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
Wednesdays – November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and December 6, 2023
10 am to 12 pm in the Our Lady of the Wayside Parish Ministry Center
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. Strong feelings may surface months, and even years after the person died. 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.
