"A friend who can be silent with me in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can face with me the reality of my powerlessness and touch my wounds with a gentle and tender hand"
The members of our Grief Support Group act as companions to families in the parish who have experienced the recent death of a family member. They receive training for this role and provide a gentle supporting presence for people in time of grief. When possible, a member of the group will participate in the preparation and celebration of a person's funeral and continue contact with a family for as long as the family finds it helpful.
Our group meets regularly to share their experiences and to receive ongoing inservice.
Our Contact for the Grief Support Group is Cecilia Brungs, 0412 284 028
