Bereavement Support

When a bereavement or death occurs within a family, among a group of friends or within a community, it can have a profound effect on all members. Grieving is a natural process which evolves from an emotional loss. If it is not dealt with at the appropriate time, it may be repressed or become chronic.

The Armagh Diocesan Pastoral Centre offers bereavement support to grieving adults. It is provided by experienced bereavement care-givers who offer individual support in confidence.

One-to-one Bereavement Support ‒ Confidentiality assured. Appointment not necessary (no cost involved).

Time: Thursday mornings 10.30am ‒ 12.30pm
