If you are seeking to find hope, strength and comfort from a loss, burden, trouble or sorrow, come take a walk with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, this Lent and find a message of strength and support from a woman who transformed her heartache and sorrow into peace and hope.
The Catholic Family Services is offering a seven-week program entitled A Journey with Mary Through Her Seven Sorrows. Each session will explore one of the Seven Sorrows of Mary’s life and the message of strength and encouragement each one contains. It is based on the book Your Sorrow is My Sorrow: Hope and Strength in Times of Suffering, by Sr. Joyce Rupp. Weekly sessions will include a reflection on one of Mary’s sorrows, guided prayer imagery and discussion.
The program will run Tuesday evenings, March 12, 26; April 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 from 7-8:30 P.M. at the Cathedral of St. Patrick Hall, 213 Broadway, Norwich, CT.
The program is free, but registration is required. To do so, or for more information, contact Mary-Jo McLaughlin at the Catholic Family Services Office at 860-848-2237, Ext. 306, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
