St. Ann’s Community plans week of events for “Sharing Hope”

Posted on October 18, 2019

Remembering loved ones and honoring the human experience of grief will be the focus of a week long series of events in November at St. Ann’s Community. The public is invited to join in the week’s events which center on the theme, “Sharing Hope.”

“Grief is experienced with the loss of a loved one or the loss of something meaningful such as a home, a job, or our health,” said Sister Mary Louise Mitchell, Director of Pastoral Care at St. Ann’s Community. “If we desire to heal from grief, then we must face it and honor it through a variety of spiritual practices. Such spiritual experiences will be offered throughout this week.”
