Attend the upcoming one-day retreat that is going to be held in Indiana and is going to be called “Mourning Together: A Retreat Day for Survivors of Suicide Loss.” This retreat is going to be presented by the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. The time of the retreat has been set for Saturday, November 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and it will take place in the Community Room of Providence Hall. With the aid of facilitator Sister Connie Kramer, SP and other members of the community, participants will be able to move past the agony and loss connected with the suicide death of a loved one.
“death by suicide is considered to be one of the most misunderstood illnesses in society,” said Sister Connie. “This therefore deepens the emotional pain for people who are survivors of the loss of a person who committed suicide,” she added. Finding means to journey with other people who have gone through the same type of loss is crucial for those who have survived the death of a loved one due to suicide.
It is essential that these individuals find ways to journey with others who have gone through the same type of grief. “When I looked into the eyes of another person and knew that they, too, are a suicide loss survivor as I am myself, I no longer felt so alone in my grief which was and continues to be incredibly consoling for me and to me,” said the individual who survived the death of a loved one to suicide.
According to commercial during the course of the retreat, there will be times set apart for people to pray, contemplate, and participate in some sharing in more intimate settings. “I designed this retreat day to offer a suicide loss survivor a chance to move beyond some of the pain and darkness related to the death of a loved one by suicide, into the light and consolation that only mourning together with others on the same journey can give to one another,” Sister Connie said.
