When someone we love has been taken from us, we often find ourselves dealing with change and transition.
Many offer their help, but do not always understand the loss we are feeling. Bereavement support groups
are one way to find support from others who are going through the same process. We cannot go around the
grief process, over it, or under it. We need to go through it; we need to be good to ourselves, putting balance
into our lives through prayer, reading, resting, relaxation and work. Grief takes time. Unrealistic expectations
undermine the healing process.
The parishes of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, St. Gabriel and St. Catharine are jointly sponsoring a Bereavement
Support Group which will meet on Wednesday evenings in the fall at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Ridgewood.
You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group will meet from 7:30-9:00 pm and run for nine consecutive
weeks beginning on September 23 and ending on November 18.
Pre-registration is required - please contact Drew Rodney at
201-214-4637 or email@example.com-. All calls are confidential.
