Eileen is passionate about walking alongside those who are suffering. She desires to acknowledge and accompany them in their pain while offering the gentle reminder that not only is God is present with us in our most difficult times, but the suffering itself can be a gift to us if we have an eternal perspective. A grieving mother herself, her heart is tender towards those who have lost children to miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death, or any other child loss, recognizing that this is a particularly difficult burden that many women bear.
Beginning in 2020, she will be holding healing retreats for grieving mothers that will include talks, small-group discussion, time for reflection, creative exercises, and the opportunity for praying the rosary and attending confession and Mass. These can also be customized to suit the special needs of your particular group.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 limitations on large group gatherings, these retreats will begin in July of 2020 in an online format. Click here for more information.
