What is GRIEFSHARE: A support group that meets weekly for 13 weeks. There are 3 key parts to the GriefShare experience:

  1. Video seminar: encouraging, information packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts.
  2. Support group: small group discussion about the weekly video content
  3. Workbook: journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics

GriefShare is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. They understand how you feel becuase they’ve been in the same place and will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.

WHO is GriefShare for: Anyone desiring help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend. It may be a recent loss or a loss you’ve been struggling with for a time.

WHEN is GriefShare: Due to health and safety concerns from COVID-19, our 13 meetings will be a mixture of in-person and virtual gatherings. the first GriefShare meeting is on THURSDAY, AUGUST 27TH AT 6:30 PM. We will gather in=person on the grounds of St. Patrick Church of Merna (near the chapel). Bring your own lawn chair.
