Strength for the Journey

When facing a major change in life - the loss of one's independence or mobility, the death of a loved one, divorce, retirement from work or the when the last child leaves the family home - there is always a period of adjustment.

We mourn the loss of the old and learn to accept the new through the process of grieving and although there is help available for those grieving a death, the other major life events we face are not so well supported.

All Saints Church will be hosting a non-religious, five-week course of support, discussion and practical help entitled Grief, Loss and Self Care. It starts on Thursday, Oct. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. and runs until Nov. 3. Liz Macdonald, who has experience in parish health ministry, hospital chaplaincy and grief counselling, will facilitate the sessions.

If you would like to attend, call All Saints at 604-946-8413 to register. A donation of $10 for course materials would be appreciated.
