If you or someone you know is grieving the death of a loved one we’d like to invite you to attend the Healing the Heart workshop. The workshop provides a safe place to express grief and begin healing after the loss of a loved one. Our grief companions have also lost someone who is dear to them and know the value of having someone listen with their heart. They recognize that each person’s grief is unique. The death of a loved one is unlike any other loss. Whether the death was sudden and tragic, or one with warning and preparation, the reality of death leaves most of us shocked, confused and sad. These feelings may linger for years.
The grief workshop is a six week program characterized by trust in prayer, open sharing and spirituality. It is a Christ-centered program, but you do not have to be a member of St. Bonaventure’s parish or a Catholic to attend. It is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one. The loss may have been a recent one or a long time ago.
The next grief workshop begins Tuesday evening January 24, 2017 at 7:30-9:00pm at Saint Bonaventure’s. Registration is required. Please call Helene Billici at (925) 686-4870 for more information and to register.
A one evening discussion about strategies for surviving stress and loneliness after the loss of a loved one.

Please register by October 6 with Helene Billeci (925-681-8105) so we have enough cookies and chairs!!
