Bereavement Retreat, September 7, 2018
WE BECOME LIKE YOU, O GOD AND PRAISE YOU FOREVER
SEPTEMBER 7, 2018
9:30 am – 2:30 pm
The example of Jesus in his life reveals his practical trust in God. Jesus engaged his feelings and confronted his death with uncommon and transforming courage. The Church understands death as radical participation in the self-giving and courage of Jesus. Our Retreat Day is a time to reflect on God’s love in the midst of sorrow and grief. As people of faith, we prayerfully engage the harsh reality of death and loss as we seek to reach out to other grieving persons. Through memorial services, prayer, reflections and sharing we will bless and encourage one another with our wisdom and presence.
