Grieving the loss of a loved one is a very challenging process. The normal grieving time for a significant loss is three to five years, with the second year being the most difficult. This process of grief will be done in a healthy or unhealthy way. In order to help those that are grieving, Cathedral is offering a five-week course on grief education and support. The classes are open to everyone, and meet Wednesdays, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, in the Multipurpose Room. To register for the classes, please call Bridget Leighton at 724-8597.
