Virtual Program Explores Mary’s Seven Sorrows

If you are seeking to find hope, strength and comfort from a loss, burden, trouble or sorrow, come take a walk with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and find a message of strength and support from a woman who transformed her heartache and sorrow into peace and hope.

The Catholic Family Services office is offering a virtual seven-week program entitled A Journey with Mary Through Her Seven Sorrows. Each session will explore one of the Seven Sorrows of Mary’s life and the message of strength and encouragement each one contains. It is based on the book Your Sorrow is My Sorrow: Hope and Strength in Times of Suffering, by Sr. Joyce Rupp. Each session will include a reflection on one of Mary’s sorrows, guided prayer imagery and discussion. 

The program will be offered Tuesday nights from 7-8:15 P.M. September 28, October 5, 12, 19, and 26 and November 2 and 9. The program takes place online and requires participants to have an internet connection.

The program is free, but requires registration. To do so, or for more information, contact Mary-Jo McLaughlin at the Catholic Family Services Office at 860-848-2237, Ext. 312, or email mmclaughlin@norwichdiocese.net.
