SS. Simon and Jude Parish, located at 6 Cavanaugh Court in West Chester will host an evening of Scripture-based meditation on discovering God’s presence within even the most difficult situations.

“Healing in the Light of Hope: Finding Christ in the Midst of the Storm” will take place Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. in the parish’s Meehan Center.

The gathering will be led by Dr. Theresa Burke, founder of an array of retreat programs, including Rachel’s Vineyard (post-abortion healing), Grief to Grace (recovery from abuse) and Duty to Heal (post-military service healing).

At the Nov. 7 session, Dr. Burke will explore trauma and healing, while presenting first-hand accounts of recovery and guiding participants through a Scripture meditation. The event will help to assure participants that while tragedy, anxiety and fear inflict undeniable suffering, God stands ready to heal.
