Grief Support Program To Begin October 13

We will offer a grief support group beginning Saturday, October 13 from 9:30am to 11:00 am in the Bride’s Room in St. Benedict Church.

 The program, called The Emmaus Journey, brings people together following the death of a loved one. It is named after the story in Luke’s gospel where two disciples meet a stranger on the road after the death of Jesus. Lost in their own sadness and grief, they fail to recognize the stranger who walks with them is the risen Jesus. Once he shares stories and breaks bread, their eyes are opened; their hearts begin to heal. Our own grief program tries to do the same by helping others to realize they are not alone in their grief.

For questions or to register, please call our pastoral associate Dennis Gehrlein at 724-941-9406 ext 109.
