For those who have experienced the loss of a loved one and need support, comfort may be found in a free program sponsored by Mercy Pastoral Services-Lebanon and Mercy Hospice-Lebanon.

The eight-week program to be offered will focus on coping and healing skills following a death. Sessions are scheduled on Thursdays from 6:30–8 p.m. beginning April 11 and culminating on May 30. It is highly recommended that participants make every effort to attend all eight sessions, but attendance is not required.

The support group is open to anyone who has experienced a loss in the past year. Sessions will be conducted by staff members of Mercy Pastoral Services–Lebanon.

All sessions will be held at Mercy Hospital Lebanon in Conference Rooms 1 & 2. For more information or to register, call 417-533-6060.
