We all experience loss and grief at some point in our lives. Loss may come in the form of unemployment, illness, breakdown of significant relationships, and perhaps in its most intense form, in the death of a loved one.
Parishioners who are members of the Parish Grief and Loss Group have committed themselves to walking gently with those who are grieving. They aim to offer a listening ear, companionship and practical assistance.
Members of the Grief and Loss group aim to give the grieving person their undivided attention, to be present to them and provide them with an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and to be heard.
