TUESDAY – December 12

6:30 pm – Symptoms of grief such as sadness, anger and depression often surface after the loss of a loved one.  This highly emotional time leaves the griever, in many cases, with confusion and a decreased ability to copy with life. Meeting with a group allows group members to learn from one another and offers bereavement_support_grouptime to resolve grief. Our series, Harvesting Our Tears has resumed.  We meet in the parish office chapel. This is an 8 week session that explores grief and offers prayer, scripture, reflection and discussion to help members work through grief. The group is facilitated by Barb Bzura RN MSN. Please call her at 561-699-3553 for additional information and to confirm our meeting date and time.
