From the Desk of Father Rubey
Tuesday, December 26, 2017 by From the Desk of Father Rubey
In January, we begin a New Year and many of us have New Year’s resolutions such as losing weight, getting more exercise or doing something positive to improve our lives such as being more understanding towards our loved ones. Former Vice President Joe Biden recently came out with a memoir detailing events in his life and what he learned from the tragedies.
Empty Space

After a spouse’s suicide surviving parents may look into the rooms of their home and see remnants of a family life that is upside down. As a family begins to acclimate to the disorder posed by the beginning of the grief journey, it might be useful to realize that a world where meaningful structure has been disabled by a traumatic loss adds an element of strangeness in familiar spaces.

From Father Rubey - July 2013
Monday, July 01, 2013 by Father Charles T. Rubey
In the course of a year we see hundreds of survivors in different contexts. Some of you are seen in monthly or weekly support groups offered throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Some are seen privately in individual counseling; others are seen with children in family counseling. Still others are seen at special events, at walks and golf outings that you tirelessly organize to raise awareness of suicide, or to provide much needed support for the LOSS Program. A great many of you we see only once each year at our Blossoms of Hope Brunch, an annual opportunity to join together to celebrate the lives of those we have lost, and importantly, to celebrate your determination to reinvent your lives and to find new meaning for what lies ahead.
