Story by Tami Quigley discusses Father Finnegan, professor of theology and philosophy at DeSales (1966-98), and his accomplishments in grief ministry. Fr. Finnegan began support groups at Assumption BVM, Colesville, which help those who have lost someone due to death, or marriage separation or divorce. The program started as informal sessions at Assumption BVM's rectory and has become successful all over the Allentown Diocese. Fr. Finnegan co-wrote a series of brochures with Carol Barron that are used during grieving sessions. Fr. Finnegan, who passed away in June, is responsible for starting these wonderful programs that
give people in grieving a place to go and the help to get them through such a hard time in their life.
