Oasis: A Retreat for Grieving Mothers
One of the hardest things I have found about grieving is how easily we become isolated. It is tempting to believe we are the only ones who are experiencing any of the wide range of emotions and physical responses to the strain of mourning.
If you are a mother grieving a child, the pain can be excruciating and lonely, no matter how old your child was or how long ago the loss occurred. Laura Kelly Fanucci is no stranger to this. Inspired by her own experience with the loss of twin infants, Laura has pulled together a team of women who have experienced the loss of children at various stages and ages to create Oasis: A Retreat for Grieving Moms. This virtual retreat will take place May 1-2, 2021.
From the website:
This May, we’ll gather as bereaved mothers: women who know the love and loss of a child. All are welcome, from those who have lost a baby before birth to those who have suffered the death of an adult child. Your story matters here.
The Oasis retreat is virtual, coming to you in the comfort of your own home. We’ll gather on Zoom 3 times during the retreat weekend (including optional small group conversations) and spend time in prayer and reflection outside the group sessions.
The companion e-book will give you a complete retreat guide: prayer, Scripture, creative activities, and reflection questions—a range of ideas to meet your unique needs in grief.
Together we’ll pray and explore ways to connect with God, each other, and our children. As we enter into the oasis—of God’s love and each other’s support—we will find rest and rejuvenation: the company of those who understand, the gift of time and space to remember our child, and the promise of peace from God as our companion on this journey.
