The St. Joseph-Breese Grief Support Group will take a brief hiatus through the Christmas holidays and winter season but individual support—by appointment, in person or by telephone—and resource material at no charge will continue to be available through the hospital’s Pastoral Care Department.
Among the resource material is information on holiday grief which was discussed at the November session. Handouts distributed at that time are still available by contacting the department.
“We are available to support you along the way,” said Sister Dorothy Niemann of Pastoral Care who serves as group coordinator. “Often that first step—that of giving yourself and others permission to talk about a loved one and the loss—is the hardest but it’s important that you make the attempt.”
Grief support may bring comfort and understanding to those who have suffered a loss.
