Our next grief support series will be held in the spring on Thursdays beginning April 21st at 6:45 pm. It will run for 6 consecutive Thursday evenings, ending May 26th and will be located at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in New Brighton.

We will be following St. John the Baptist Catholic Church's facility use policy during this pandemic. Child care will not be provided for safety reasons. Face masks are strongly suggested.

The speaker presentation will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel.
Each evening begins with a speaker on a grief or loss-related topic, followed by small group discussions. Groups are formed based on types of loss, such as loss of spouse, child, parent, friend, sibling, divorce, suicide survivor, and transitional loss. These are peer support groups with a facilitator, however these are not intended to be counseling sessions. Each Session is complete in itself. You are welcome to attend one or all.
