Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
Next meeting dates: April 27, May 25

Fr. Robert Harvey will lead a study on prayer during the Wednesdays of Lent, beginning on March 13. The evenings will begin at 6:30 pm with a pot luck dinner. The evening will continue with a study based on the book In God's Presence: Theological Reflections on Prayer by Marjorie Hewitt Suchocki. What are we really doing when we pray? How does prayer bring us into the presence of God?
Participants may purchase the book online or through local booksellers.
Our program will vary on March 27 when we will have a guest speaker.
April 7, 9:00 am
Books & Bites provides a forum for people to discuss a book that they have read together. Although some of the discussion is book specific, questions that address broader themes provide an entry point for participation by everyone. All are welcome!
The book selection for April is Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. "A recent article in the New Yorker about Rachel Carson prompted me to go to the library and re-read Silent Spring. It is very readable and still on point, especially given that her research lead to enactment of significant environmental legislation which is now under attack on various fronts."
