The Journey of Loss and Grief
When Jesus’ friend Lazarus dies, the Gospel of John tells us that “Jesus wept” (Jn 11:35). We experience many losses in our lives and the death of someone we love is just one of them. We also lose relationships, roles, bodily functions, and communities. Grief is a normal response to loss, yet grief is chaotic and hard, so much so that we want to avoid it. But grief is the only way through loss. How can we better understand the journey of grief and how to take it in a faithful way? How does God call us to grieve and, finally, from our grief?
Thursday, November 5, Webinar presentation from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Event is Free. Registration is required (register at least five days in advance of the event); please visit www.collegevilleMN.com/theologyday, call 320-363-3560, or email email@example.com to register.

Pacem in Terris is a place of beauty and incredible peace. Everyone who comes through the door feels special because they sense that God has prepared this place just for them. But our community house–Our Lady of Pacem–is only a doorway that leads to the heart of Pacem; the hermitage. In that sanctuary of silence and solitude, riches beyond the human imagination await the open heart. It would be our prayer that one day you will visit as our guest or as a hermit.
