GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays is a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death. Holy Family Catholic Church will be hosting this non-denominational seminar before the holidays on Saturday, November 11, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. until noon. This session will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church, 8950 County Highway J, Woodruff.

Pre-registration is encouraged at least one week prior to the seminar date.

The one-time cost is $5.00 to cover the cost of the Survival Guide that accompanies the seminar. Child care is not available.

The seminar features video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance.

These people share honestly on these issues:

  • Being prepared for surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays
  • What to do about traditions and other coming changes
  • How to handle holiday parties and invitations
  • How to survive potentially awkward moments with other people
  • Where to find comfort, strength, and hope in a seemingly hopeless time

Those who attend will receive a Survival Guide filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.

Facial coverings and social distancing may be observed, as advised by local health authorities.

For more information and/or to register, call Holly Dionne (715-972-4010) or Diane Taggart (715-972-4012).
