Bereavement (Support) Committee
Jane Rosentreter, RN at 615-461-7966.
We invite you to attend several “A Patchwork of Grief” Support Group sessions to allow you to tell your story and really be “listened to.” Just as in a patchwork quilt, we each have had a different experience with death and we deal with our grief in our own way. This group is just one way offered to you for education about the grieving process and support from parishioners who have been trained to assist in the grieving process. The sessions are held in the library of the OLOL center in the Fall on 8 consecutive Tuesday nights at 7:00 PM. The dates are in the bulletin.
