About the event
Saturday, November 4, 2023, 9AM
Presented by the Bereavement Ministry at St. Monica, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, and St. Stephen of Hungary, join us for a morning of reflection with speaker Jayne Porcelli.
"For over 40 years Jayne Porcelli has loved her ministry in our church. Her pastoral work has included all aspects of parish work, education, retreat work and pastoral counseling. Currently she is enjoying working on writing/speaking projects and spiritual direction."
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, the holiday season can be especially painful. Expectations, seasonal events, and the celebration of those around us often collide with our loss and sadness. Join us for a morning of prayer, reflection, journaling, and ritual rooted in our Christian faith. Find comfort and hope in our faith, and in practical suggestions for navigating the holiday season.
The retreat will end in 12PM Mass.
We kindly request your RVSP by Tuesday, 10/24.
