Life Applications for Healing from Grief

February 7 - The Nature of Grief – An introductory time for the coordinator to get acquainted with participants and explore the characteristics and duration of grief.

February 14 - It’s Your Choice – Grieving becomes a choice. The group will address the fact that people have the ability to make the choice to heal from their grieving.

February 21 - Finding Your Way – The focus in this session will be on navigating through the second year of grief.

February 28 - Memories – Healing through grief is not meant to dissuade people from memories of their loved one, but to help them find ways that are not depressing to keeping their memory alive.

We will meet at Avanti's Restuarant in Pekin.  Sessions begin at 11:00 a.m. and will last approximately an hour.  Then we will order lunch off the menu.  Invite a friend or family members who are grieving.  No reservations or enrollment required.  Open to all including those not served by Preston-Hanley.

John Plunkett, Aftercare Coordinator

A retired pastor with 50 years of experience ministering to grieving families through hospice, funeral services and aftercare programs, John has a genuine concern and pastor's heart for helping people who are hurting.
