GriefShare is a special weekly seminar and support group led by parish volunteers who have or are currently experiencing their own grief. This ministry is for people who are grieving the death of someone close to them. It's a place to be around people who understand what you are feeling.
 
Believing the grief is a natural response to loss and a necessary process in adjusting to change, we endeavor to support the bereaved in their mourning. Support groups strive to facilitate expression of emotion and thought about loss, including sadness, pain, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, isolation, confusion or numbness. Challenges that often follow a loss can include disorganization, tiredness, trouble concentrating, sleep deprivation, vivid dreams and changes in appetite. At GriefShare, you'll learn valuable information about recovering from your grief and renewing your hope for the future.

The new Fall session of GriefShare meetings runs for seven weeks from 7:00 - 8:30 PM and begins Monday evenings:
September 11, 18, 25 and October 2, 9, 16, and 23.
 
Schedule topics:
Week 1: Introduction and Overview
Week 2: Beginning to accept the reality of loss
Week 3: Experiencing the pain of grief Week
Week 4: Adjusting to the environment without your loved one.
