Bereavement Workshops Offered
This is a practical workshop – It will train a parish team to be a source of education, comfort and support to those who have suffered a loss. If you want to provide this type of ministry in your parish, contact the Office of Marriage & Family Life to set one up in your parish or find out where the next one is to be held: 510-267-8392.
Cost is $25/person - Parish 'team discounts' are available. To keep costs down, please bring a sack lunch (you will have a ‘working lunch’).
The workshop will be led by Sandy Heinisch. With extensive experience as a grief minister/counselor and trainer with the National Catholic Ministry to the Bereaved, Sandy is also a trained nurse (35 years) and nursing instructor (over 20 years). Married for 50 years, she is a mother with two surviving children and five grandchildren.
