Martha's Ministry Bereavement Group
The death of a loved one, either a family member or a close friend, is often a traumatic experience. Regardless of the circumstances, one can never fully prepare for a death. The purpose of Martha's Ministry is to provide support for those who have lost someone special. This ministry provides those who have experienced a loss the opportunity to share their experiences, feelings and emotions in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental setting.
St. Mary's will offer a vicariate-wide Bereavement Support Group beginning Monday, September 25 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm and ending November 2 with the All Souls' Mass. All are welcome, no matter who you have lost or how long it has been since your loss.
The group will meet in the Rosary Room of the parish hall and follow a series of readings and discussions.
To register or for more information, please call the parish office at 815-844-7683 or complete the form below.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed. ~ Psalm 34:19
