Resources for grief and loss 

Attached are some prayers and associated readings which have been produced by the Diocese.
We hope these will give you some comfort during this time of isolation from family, friends and what was our “normal life.” We are at the end of a phone if you would like a chat, or feeling troubled, so please ring Marjorie on 07391 529 827 in the first instance. You may also like to share some of these prayers with someone you know who could benefit from them. Keeping you all in prayers,
The Bereavement Support Group  - Marjorie, Margaret, Liz, Patsy, Erica and Barbara
