Little Company of Mary Offers Adult Grief Support Program

New Fall Session Starts in October

Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers is now accepting registrations for the adult grief support program, Living: When a Loved One Has Died.  The group offers supportive and skilled companionship for those who are mourning the death of their loved one. 

 

This adult bereavement program originated in 1982 and has been privileged to support hundreds of people in the community. The program was created to offer a compassionate and respectful atmosphere to guide the bereaved at a most difficult time in their life. “The depth of pain after the death of a loved one is something disconcerting and very frightening to anyone grieving,” said Peg Schneider, Chaplain in the Pastoral Care Department, and co-coordinator of Heart Connection and Bereavement Services at Little Company of Mary. “Coming to a support group and being with others who are mourning the death of a loved one of similar circumstances is not only helpful, but contributes to the healing and lessening of pain.”

 

The fall session of Living: When a Loved One Has Died begins on Wednesday, October 2nd  from 7:30-9:30 p.m. in the Mary Potter Pavilion, located at 2850 W. 95th St., Evergreen Park, IL 60805. Pre-registration is required. Group sessions continue for seven consecutive weeks. For further information or to register for any of the bereavement programs offered at Little Company of Mary, please call co-coordinators of bereavement services, Peg Schneider, Chaplain or Arlene Dulski, Counselor at 708.229.5484.
