'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’
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. You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group will meet on Monday evenings from 7:30-9:00pm at St. Catharine in Glen Rock and will run for eight consecutive weeks beginning on June 5 and ending on July 24.
