We’ve all experienced loss in many ways over the last year. This can create a heavy burden to carry. Grieving is a process of healing, helping us to manage loss effectively so it does not interfere with living life. Sometimes it is helpful to have the companionship and support of others to help us in the hard work of grieving.
We invite you to meet others who are dealing with loss in their life. Together we will explore:
The session is led by Fr. Garry Richmeier, a licensed family therapist, and Annette D’Angelo and Marge Lavenburg, both of whom have extensive experience in hospice care.
“Grieving: Healing from Loss” is a free, video-on-demand program that will be available for viewing until the end of February. Later, the presenters will convene a Zoom meeting to address issues viewers might have. Stay tuned for details about this second program.
