THE JOURNEY OF GRIEF SERIES ~How to have a Good “Bad” Day~ Held at Sacred Heart Church on Tuesday, March 10, at 6:30 pm in the Parish Center. All are welcome. Grief is not a process of forgetting. It is a process of learning to cope while we remember. We grieve because we have loved. Grief is hard work at a time when we seem to have little energy. We cannot control the feelings that arise within us, but we can choose what to do with them. Let us together explore ways to work through the days when feelings seem to overwhelm us. Find out how having a “Pity Party” is sometimes necessary and can be therapeutic. FUNTIMERS & ALL ADULT PARISHIONERS!!

He grabbed a branch and hung there. He couldn’t pull himself up and was becoming exhausted. Finally he looked up to the heavens and cried out: “God, help me; please, help me.” Suddenly the clouds parted and a deep voice resounded, “Let go!” The young man paused, looked around, and then he looked up at heaven once more and said: “Is anyone else up there?” PREPARE FOR EASTER~ Please join in finding the answers in the Gospel according to Mark.
