Webinar shares how to support spouses in times of bereavement

Share this story

The Church of Ireland Marriage Council held a webinar earlier this month with local church leaders and pastoral care teams to discuss the issues that people can face when their spouse or partner dies. The webinar included helpful inputs from trained counsellors across Ireland, and is now available to view on the Church of Ireland’s Vimeo channel at www.vimeo.com/956598841

As part of its role in resourcing the Church, the Marriage Council wants to support clergy, staff and parishioners in a variety of ways that connect with marriage and relationships.  This is the first in a series of webinars to help in a simple and easy way.  The Council now plans to develop this series further and look at other issues such as ‘the empty nest’ and handling issues around divorce and separation.
