Grief Education and Bereavement Series

Wednesday, December 2, 2015, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

To assist those who are dealing with the death of a family member or friend, Saint Anne's Hospital Office of Spiritual Care offers a series of programs to help share and explore feelings and learn ways to accept and cope with grief and loss.

Offered bi-weekly, these programs focus on various aspects of the grief process in a confidential, compassionate and safe setting.  (See schedule of upcoming topics below.)

This series is facilitated by Sister Judith A. Costa, S.S.D., M. Div. A member of Saint Anne’s Spiritual Care team, Sr. Judith is certified in thanatology (death, dying and bereavement) and is a certified pastoral counselor, academy certified master chaplain level three, and fellow in the American Psychotherapy Association.
