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 twice a month on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Stoico/FIRSTFED Center for Breast Care at Saint Anne's Hospital, Fall River, these programs focus on various aspects of the grief process in a confidential, compassionate and safe setting.  (See schedule of 2013-2014 topics below.)

The series is facilitated by Sister Judith Costa, SSD, MDiv, DAPA, CT, ACMC-III, who is a certified pastoral counselor with additional certification in thanatology (death, dying and bereavement) and as an Academy-certified master chaplain (Level Three). 

All are welcome.  There is no charge, and reservations are not required.
