Sacred Heart on the Lake Offers Programs on Grief and Bereavement

Submitted by Sr. Lany Jo Smith, ASCJ

(August 22, 2023) — Sacred Heart on the Lake Retreat Center in Higganum announces two programs dealing with grief and bereavement.

Understanding Grief:  People ask: “Why does grieving take so long and why is it so painful?”  There are many factors that are part of grieving.  Join us for a presentation on the tasks of grieving, on what helps a person move through grief, and on how someone who has experienced the loss of a loved one can live a more peaceful life.

This program will be presented on September 5, 2023, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart on the Lake Retreat Center, 194 Candlewood Hill Road in Higganum. To register, call or email Sr. Patricia Cigrand, ASCJ at 203-606-4830 or Email: cigrandpatricia@gmail.com   Donations are welcomed.

New Day Seminar for the Bereaved: This nine-week seminar helps the bereaved with the tasks of grieving. The topics of each session allow individuals to share their grief story, and to learn about the grieving process and its tasks for healing in a confidential and safe setting.  Listening to others gives the participant a perspective with which to begin healing.  The price of the book used for the sessions is $10.00.

The program will run on nine Thursdays from September 7, 2023 to November 2, 2023 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart on the Lake Retreat Center, 194 Candlewood Hill Road in Higganum. To register, call or email Sr. Patricia Cigrand, ASCJ at 203-606-4830 or email: cigrandpatricia@gmail.com.
