Grief Support

I will turn their mourning into joy; I will console and gladden them after their sorrows 

Jeremiah 31:13

St. Mary’s hosts a 13-week program using Griefshare, a special, lay-led weekly seminar and support group that embraces a biblical, Christ-centered approach to grieving.

Please join us for help and encouragement after the death of a loved one. We provide a safe and loving environment to encourage sharing and exchanging of concerns and feelings as you are comfortable.

This group is open to anyone in our community, regardless of Church affiliation. Please pass the information along to anyone you know who might need it. People may join the group at any point during the 13 weeks; each session stands alone.

The registration fee is $20 and scholarships are available. Registration information is available at the Parish Office. 

Upcoming Meetings

The meetings are held downstairs in Mother Teresa Conference Room from 3:30-5:00pm but we join for coffee and fellowship any time after 3:00pm.
