Talk On âCoping With The Holidays After A Lossâ
BRIDGEPORT â A presentation on âCoping with the Holidays After A Lossâ will be held on Tuesday, December 6, from 2 to 3 pm in the Medical Oncology Conference Room on Level 3 of the Elizabeth Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care adjacent to St Vincentâs Medical Center (the conference room is just off the elevator to the right).
The informational session, sponsored by St Vincentâs Pastoral Care Department and geared to individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one, will be facilitated by Director of Pastoral Care Deacon Paul Jennings and hospital chaplain Deacon Jose Mestre.
âPeople coping with loss feel especially vulnerable and alone during the holiday season with its expectations of celebration and good cheer,â said Rev Jennings. âOur session seeks to offer resources, support and some helpful guidelines to help them navigate an emotional passage through this difficult time, and encourage the process of healing and growth.â
Registration is limited. Free parking is available in the garage immediately in front of the medical center front entrance with a validated ticket.
