Sharing and connecting with other people mourning the loss of loved ones is one of the most effective ways to move through grief and eventually re-embrace life.
Through prayer, inspirational readings and the sharing of grief stories, participants soon realize that they are not alone on their journeys. While all journeys contain some common elements, participants discover that each grief journey is unique in terms of length of mourning and depth of sorrow.
Holy Cross supports all those who are grieving the passing of their loved ones. Support group meetings are held two times per month. During the meetings, those in attendance are invited to share their stories if they feel comfortable doing so. In addition participants will have opportunities to comprehend what is happening in the midst of their grief and to learn to accept the many changes they are experiencing. Most of all, participants will discover a community of compassion and love that will help them get through the most difficult times in their grief journeys.
Meetings are held every first and third Wednesday from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. in classroom D at Holy Cross from September through June.
