Grief can be a very powerful and overwhelming emotion that changes your life. Understanding and accepting compassion from others and a commitment to allowing the experience to heal you, can take you on a journey of discovering meaning in life again.
The holidays are an especially hard time. The season renews memories, family ties and traditions. We become painfully aware that our special loved one is no longer present. This is often difficult for families. The pain of the loss is confused with the spirit of the season. “Grief and the Holidays” is a workshop offered through Porter Loring Family Care Services. It is a workshop designed to help those who are grieving and their families to better understand the grief process, how it affects us during the holidays and how we can use this special time to continue to heal.
Please join us on Saturday, October 29 in the Parish Hall from 1:30-4:30pm for a “Grief and the Holidays” workshop. Bring a picture of your loved one. We invite you to attend the 5pm Mass with us as we receive a blessing. Please contact Judy Pawelek at 210-279-2799 to reserve a spot.
