Parish offers grief group
A parish is offering a support group for those who have lost a loved one.
TUALATIN — Some Catholic parishes in Oregon offer grief support groups. Among them is Resurrection Parish here.
The parish's health and wellness ministry is holding Sunday afternoon sessions, 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m. through Nov. 17 in the Fireside Room.
Each session begins with prayer and a brief review of key points from the book Understanding Your Grief. Then comes time for sharing, support and fellowship. Participants work together to discover and develop skills.
"Our time together is about listening, sharing, supporting and healing," says a brochure. There is no fee, but a free will donation is taken up.
