The Grief of Dads

Support and Hope of Catholic Fathers Navigating Child Loss

Patrick O'Hearn and Bryan Feger

For a variety of reasons-including cultural norms, a man's traditional role in the family, and lack of support-a father's grief often fades into the background when his child dies. The Grief of Dads was written by Catholic fathers just like you who have lost a child at any age and from any circumstance. These dads offer the support, spiritual guidance, and companionship you need as you make your way through grief.

The Grief of Dads is an important resource to help you know that you are not alone and to work through loss and the upheaval of deep grieving with help from men who have been there, too.

Authors Patrick O'Hearn and Bryan Feger, along with Ryan Breaux of Red Bird Ministries-an organization that guides individuals and couples through the trauma of losing a child-want to normalize conversations about men's grief.

Drawing on the richness of the Catholic faith, they offer stories from the men in the Bible and from male saints who knew the pain of losing a child and yet found hope and healing in God. The authors share their own stories and the experiences of seven other fathers who lean on their faith and seek healing with help from the sacraments, the Bible, fellow Catholics, and the devotional practices of the Church.

The book includes resource lists, journaling space, prayers, spiritual reflections, and letters of spiritual support, as well as guidance for friends, family, and pastors of grieving fathers. Kelly Breaux, cofounder and president of Red Bird Ministries, wrote a chapter for wives as well.
