Grief Support Group – Your Journey from Mourning to Joy
GriefShare – 13 Week Program
Location: Old St. Mary Parish Office, 835 N Milwaukee St
Tuesday, March 21–June 20 (No Meeting April 11, June 6)
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Our GriefShare group will be led by caring people who have the experienced grief and successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. You are welcome to begin attending at any point. Each session is self-contained, so you do not have to attend in sequence.
What to expect: GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey thought grief. There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience:
Video Seminar – Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts.
Support group – Small group discussion about the weekly video content
Workbook – Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics
$20.00 for the cost of the workbook. Scholarships are available.
If you have questions or wish to register for the next grief support group, please contact Terri Balash, Director of Pastoral Care at 414-469-6173 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is encouraged so we can plan accordingly.
