SEVEN SORROWS OF MARY
FIVE-WEEK SEMINAR FOR GRIEVING PARENTS
TUESDAY EVENINGS DURING LENT, 2022

For all grieving parents whose children of any age
have died by any cause, no matter how long ago.
Join other grieving parents, in-person, to consider the Seven Sorrows of Mary
as they apply specifically to grieving parents.
Our Blessed Mother, Mary, was an ordinary young girl
who was asked to face enormous challenges in her life
and, of course, the deepest suffering in the loss of her beloved Son.
She chose to face those challenges with courage, perseverance and fortitude.
We have so much we can learn from her.
This program is designed for grieving parents
who want to develop a relationship with Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Please note that it may not be appropriate for newly bereaved parents.
It will be a limited to an in-person small group of 4-8 participants.
We will meet weekly for five weeks during Lent, 2022.
With the aid of the arts, we will reflect on Mary’s humanity
and the depth of the pain of losing a child.
It will help us to answer such questions as…
Why is Mary so important?
Is Mary taking care of our children for us?
How can Mary be our best friend?
Using Joyce Rupp’s book, Your Sorrow is My Sorrow,
we will seek her strength and hope in our own grief.
