Bereavement Support Group – Knock Shrine

Bereavement Care at Knock Shrine

Death is a universal experience, and it knocks on the door of every family at some time. And even though we know that truth, it’s only when death finds a way into our own families, that we understand the difference between death as something echoing in the distance and death as a difficult and lonely experience.

Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed as we struggle with difficult thoughts and emotions that invariably accompanies the death of someone we love. Often too we long to feel supported and understood as we seek to reach a place of acceptance and peace again in our lives.

Our Bereavement Support Team offers a space that helps the bereaved to find this space. Recovery is never about moving on but rather about how to experience a new found peace and ease with life again.

  • A weekly bereavement support meeting take place every Wednesday at 11.00 am. in the Family Centre. All are welcome. (September to July inclusive)
  • A monthly support meeting for bereaved spouses / partners takes place on the First Thursday of each month at 11.00 am. in the Family Centre. All are welcome.

Our Garden of Remembrance provides a beautiful space to remember your loved ones during your visit to Knock Shrine.
