Many people find the holidays a challenging time. Instead of celebrating, they are struggling with grief. They miss loved ones and find that the usual traditions and bright lights serve only to heighten their struggle. 

Benedictine Father Adrian Burke will lead the service with prayer and Scripture that acknowledge those who mourn and struggle with loss during the Christmas season.

Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will follow. RSVP requested for planning, but not required. Reply to or call 800-987-7380 for further information.

Parking is available in the Guest House parking lot.
