Bereavement resources

"From Loss to Hope" pamphlet series

Reading can be a great help when the loss of a loved one leaves us feeling vulnerable and exposed. To make sure you have all the tools you need to maintain your well-being during this time of sorrow, we have created nine pamphlets on coping with your loss. Each pamphlet offers practical advice and comfort during the difficult time you (or someone close to you) may be experiencing. These pamphlets are available for download in PDF format or in paper format at our Administration building.

"Le temps précieux de la fin"

In 2003, Les Éditions Novalis published Le temps précieux de la fin (Precious time at the end) by Jean Monbourquette and Denise Lussier-Russell, an excellent book for people seeking to prepare for death and live in serenity during the final days of their lives. Using a wealth of technical, psychological, humanist and Christian resources, the book is intended as a guide on “how to die” in peace and harmony.
