Special Events

Throughout the year Brenan's Funeral Homes offer a number of programs for the benefit of those we serve and the community at large. Most are related to helping those who are dealing with a loss - recent or past - and typically, they are open to everyone. This page will feature news of upcoming programs as they are announced.

Meet Mary Francis

Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, Early Intervention Field Traumatologist, Certified Law of Attraction Facilitator
& Published Author

 The death of her husband launched Mary Francis on her own grief journey, inspiring her to write a book on the widow's experience and ultimately to enter the field of grief recovery professionally. 

Today she draws on her life lessons and the formal education she sought out to help others as they grieve.

The Grief Journey 

You think that you can control your moods, but a thoughtless comment sends you over the edge. You want to get rebalanced but you can't envision a future without your loved one.

Spend time with Mary Francis as she draws on her own grief journey and specialized training to offer you the guidance you need. 

Brenan’s Funeral Homes are pleased to present Mary’s Grief Recovery Sessions taking place over three Saturday afternoons in October.
