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 2017-2018 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.
All are welcome to attend any or all sessions. There is no charge, and drop-ins are welcome.
