The Rev. Jason Phillips, the Lehigh Regional Medical Center chaplain, announced that he will be introducing a new group to provide support and guidance to people in the community who have experienced a loss.
Loss is not just the loss of a loved one or family member, but rather the loss of any important part of someone's life.
The Living with Loss program began Tuesday, Aug. 7. The group will meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. in the meeting room at the hospital.
"The loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult things we deal with in our lives and having the comfort of being with others who are also experiencing loss can be the difference between moving forward with one's life and being stuck and not being able to move past the loss," Phillips said.
"I am very pleased that we will be providing this important support to the community," he said.
The Living with Loss groups are open to the public. If you have experienced a loss and are suffering, this may be an opportunity for you to begin the healing process.
