Bereavement  and our Spiritual Journey 

Tuesday,  June 6, 7:00 p.m.  Mount Olivet Cemetery                                                              Presenters:  Bob  and Joyce Grinewich

    Bob is Pastoral Associate at  SS. Peter and Paul Parish Williamsville and Joyce does Bereavement     Ministry at SS. Peter and Paul Parish.

Having lost a loved one evokes many feelings and emotions among which is losing sight of God’s presence and support during the time of one’s grief.   We will explore how God may seem far away, but we will share how through grief we can feel God’s presence more so than ever before.  We will look at this time as part of the Journey that we are all on and how God supports us through it. 

Program will be held at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 4000 Elmwood Ave, Kenmore.
