Grief Retreat

Mound Offers Grief Retreat, Remembering Service


Rays of sun light beaming through trees onto a pathSinsinawa Mound Center is offering those who have experienced loss in their lives ways to make the holidays a little easier while acknowledging the loss. Grief Retreat: Journey toward Wholeness is being offered 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.

Throughout our life, we experience the loss of people, places and things. We will reflect on our losses and discover how loss can lead to greater wholeness and holiness with questions such as these: What have been the losses in my life? How have I dealt with the grief of the loss? Do the people who have died live on in my life? How do I find hope in the midst of the pain of the loss? Sister Mary Hopkins, OP, is a certified grief specialist and will lead you through this day. The cost is $50 per person, which includes lunch. The registration deadline is Nov. 29.

Remembering Our Loved Ones at Holiday Time will be at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5. This ecumenical service will honor family and friends who have died by displaying a personalized ornament on a tree. You will be invited to receive the ornament as your loved one is named. This service is a living memorial and provides an opportunity for you and your family to experience a new and meaningful ritual. To remember your loved one(s) with an ornament, please contact Janice at (608) 748-4411, ext. 811, by Nov. 26.
