GriefShare Support Group
January 14, 2019
April 15, 2019
Starting Monday, January 14, Holy Family will be offering GriefShare. The group will meet from 4:00-6:00 pm through April 15, 2018 in the Holy Family Fireside Room.
Who should come to GriefShare? GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video. After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video and what is going on in your lives. After the meeting, you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process, and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study. If you have questions, or you would like to register for GriefShare, contact Mary Denzin at Holy Family Office or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blessed, Broken and Scared - One Day Retreat
February 23, 2019
We are the broken door.
We are in need of repair.
The challenging part is we must not wait until the door is perfect before inviting others into our life to meet Jesus who dwells within us.
It is through Jesus that we bring others to God. Jesus calls us as we are, broken, to be the door through which others can enter to meet Him.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 23. “Blessed, Broken and Scared” will be a day of prayer and reflection as we hear Brian Pusateri’s message of God’s mercy, as he inspires us to live a more fulfilling and impactful Christian life. Watch for more information in upcoming bulletins.

In this second evening, Adam will explore common challenges for every Catholic, including struggling to find time, feeling awkward, and attempts to hide ourselves from God- and what we can do about it.

In this final evening, Adam will offer five simple and concrete disciplines a disciple of the Lord Jesus can add to their day, allowing them to greater fall in love with God and his Catholic Church.
