Grieving the loss of a loved one? After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues, and you feel alone.
That's the reason that Cathedral will be hosting Grief Share, a support group that meets weekly on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm in the Cathedral School Library. You'll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an "oasis" on your long journey through grief. There are three key parts to the Grief Share experience:
a) Video seminar: encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts
b) Support group: small-group discussion about the weekly video content
c) Workbook: journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce weekly session topics
Our first meeting for this summer will be on May 28, and we will continue to meet each Thursday evening from 6-8pm through August 27. For more information, contact Berni Ely at 217-899-6637 or at Jackandberni96@yahoo.com, or, visit Grief Share's official website at www.griefshare.org
