Grief Support

You are not alone. While everyone else appears to have moved on, our small-group, faith-based support program can be a soothing and healing space. Listen and learn, and come away with new and useful perspectives.

While no one experiences grief the same, there is a shared experience of loss. Come join us in our Diocesan-wide small group, bereavement support program. All are welcome.
