Since 1991, Healing Hearts Grief Outreach Program has provided support for Catholics who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Each year, the Mass of the Holy Innocents (Dec. 28) is offered for parents who have lost an infant. Support groups and Grief Outreach training are also available through Healing Hearts.
In its six-week series, offered twice each year, Healing Hearts deals with such issues as:
- Grief Process
- Christian Perspective on Suffering
- Effects of Grief on Relationships
- Comfort from Scripture
- Restoring Balance
Speakers discuss these and other important topics. The small group discussion format encourages sharing. The series concludes with a Healing Mass.
Healing Hearts encourages continuation of the group to form support and to cover various other topics dealing with grief and recovery.
The next six week session will begin in the spring. Dates are pending. For more information or to register, contact the Family Life Office at 402-488-2040.
