Happy Groundhog Day. We are hopeful that Mr. Groundhog has not seen his shadow. That means spring is just around the corner. Happy Birthday to everyone who was born on such an important day. My brother, David, was born on this day 27 years ago, and spring came early that year. Let's hope the same thing happens this year.

Bradley S. Mauzy has been appointed director of Single Again, a support ministry for separated and divorced people sponsored by Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church in Crofton. The group meets on Thursday evenings.

Former director Janis Thompson added another support group, called Healing Journey, for those whose spouses have died.

This program is headed by counselor Eileen Walters. The group meets on Wednesday nights at Prince of Peace.

Mauzy received his bachelor of science degree in psychology from Syracuse University and master of science in counseling from the State University of New York at Oneonta. After graduate school, he worked in family services in Utica, N.Y.

Mauzy served as Single Again's assistant director from 1988-1991.

Mauzy's new position allows him to get involved in church ministries.

"Single Again is not a preaching group, but it does provide the opportunity for me to act upon my convictions," Mauzy said. "When we become separated or our spouse dies, we tend to feel lost in a desert of turbulent emotions. People coming to Single Again programs are in search of guidance to help them find their way again. People today are looking for more than a 'haven for rest.' "

/# They also want to improve their

lives so they can get back on their feet and make their relationships stronger. Mauzy looks forward to his new challenge. For more information, call Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church, (410) 721-2313.
