"Journeying in Grief through the Holidays" with Sr. Laura Gormley, S.S.L.  Saturday, October 31,  from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Journeying through grief for the loss of a loved one is a difficult task as people move through the many aspects of all the losses involved in grief.  As the year comes to an end, the thought of facing the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday season can be an extra burden, filling people with dread. Participants will consider possible ways of preparing for and participating in these occasions while honoring the memory of people who have died.  Participants will also reflect on their ongoing everyday experience of grief, its various dimensions, and ways that may help along the path.  Lunch included.  Cost: $45 ($40 if paid in full by Friday, October 23).
