Grief to Grace
Grief to Grace talk in Effingham
On October 17th 2022, the Grief to Grace team collaborated with Baroness Sheila Hollins (one of the founding members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors) in a very moving evening organised by the Parish of Our Lady of Sorrows, Effingham, Surrey.
This was a parish initiative designed to give people the opportunity to hear about the abuse crisis in the Church and what’s being done about it, but principally to provide a safe space in which to share their own thoughts and reactions to it. It represented a real desire to change the culture at a grass roots level and embrace Safeguarding which includes concrete measures for hearing and healing survivors.
