Losing a child under any circumstance is horrific.
Focusing on the spirituality of the grieving process can help tremendously.
Just as He comforted his grieving disciples on the road to Emmaus,
Jesus comforts us and we comfort each other in this very special ministry.

Join our Archdiocese of Oklahoma City Retreat Team
in a warm and loving place
to think, to talk, to feel, and to pray.
Find compassion, rest, and peace… at least for a time.

Where is God in my pain…
How can my faith help me through this horrible, new reality of life without my child?
