           Spiritual & Emotional Healing Sessions

         On the 3rd Saturday of each month
St. Benedict Catholic Church

We will be holding sessions on how to recover from the pain of major losses in life - weather it is from the loss of a loved one, from facing a serious illness, a major change in life or financial constraints. In these sessions we will review some life strategies to help you get back on track with handling  your situation and moving on to a more peaceful and spiritual life.   We will be referring to scripture to see where God has given us direction in handling our difficulties. Time will also be allowed for sharing our personal stories in order to give and recieve support and encouragement from each other.  This month topic will be "How to Make Your Grieving More Effective."

If this sounds helpful or interesting to you, please call Father Vincent at 572-9440. We look forward to seeing you at our next session at St. Benedict, 950 Darrell Creek Trail in 
Mt. Pleasant.
