BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP - Living through grief is not easy but it does not have to be done alone.  The St. Bernard St. Matthew Community will offer a 9-week support program called "New Day" for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.  The goal of this program is to provide a sense of community where support is given and received.  The "New Day' program is led by trained facilitators and includes prayer, discussion and journaling.  Although "New Day" is a faith-based program, it is not restricted to Catholics and all are welcome.

We will begin this program on October 2nd and it will run until the first week in December.  Group meetings will be held on Tuesday mornings from 10:15 - 11:45 a.m.  The group will be meeting in the Chapel at St. Mathew Church in Tolland, CT.  In order to accommodate individual needs, the group size for this program is limited to nine persons.  For further information or to register for the program, please call Deacon Ron Freedman (860-478-4539).
