The loss of a parent through death, or a changed parental relationship through divorce or separation can be a traumatic experience for children, or for those in their teens or twenties. In dealing with these losses, they may become withdrawn, fearful, insecure, act out for no apparent reason, become confused or depressed, and often blame themselves. Beginning Experience is offering a weekend for young people ages 12-18 on March 10-12 at Maryhill Renewal Center in Pineville. It is presented by a team of youth and adults who have experienced this loss themselves and are willing to share their experience to help others. Cost is $125 which includes two nights’ lodging and meals.  To register or for more information call Rose at (504) 920-0770  or
