WHEELING—Grief from a Faith Perspective, a bereavement gathering, is being held monthly at 6 p.m. on the last Monday of each month in the basement at St. Alphonsus Parish in Wheeling. Anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one is invited to attend.
“If you, or someone you know has lost a loved one and may benefit from a gathering for those grieving, please join us,” said Rev. Mr. Doug Breiding, director of Cemeteries for the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, who is also one of the facilitators for the gatherings. “Those that have attended found comfort in hearing and sharing with others who are going through a difficult time in their lives. That they are not alone.”
