Denial helps us to pace our feelings of grief. There is a grace in denial. It is nature’s way of letting in only as much as we can handle. (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross)
Join us for our next Bereavement Support Group meeting on Thursday, March 8, 2018, when we will discuss the normal feelings of denial, bargaining and guilt. There will be a morning session at Mary Mother of the Redeemer from 10:00 to 11:30 am in the Parish Conference room and an evening session at St. Stanislaus from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Parish Center. No registration is necessary, just come if you can. Any questions or for more information call Mary at 215-646-4192.
