Join grief counselor, Catherine Miller, for this workshop. Pastoral ministry is in Catherine Miller’s blood. She’s a former missionary kid who was born and lived in Iran for her first 12 years. A sensitive child, Catherine was always drawn to people who were hurting and suffering. She later discovered she had the spiritual gifts of mercy and compassion. She currently serves as Director of Pastoral Programs and Adult Formation at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Dallas. She’s a grief counselor, lay chaplain and completed her first year of hospital chaplaincy – CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. She’s a fan of Dr. Alan Wolfelt, a world renowned grief counselor and author and has studied under him for the last five years. She considers it an honor to companion people in their grief.
