It may be hard to feel optimistic about the future after you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, and you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help those who are grieving face these challenges and move toward rebuilding their life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: a video, discussion and personal study and reflection.
WHEN: Mondays, 1 – 2:30 p.m.,
Feb. 19 & 26; Mar. 5, 12, 19 & 26; Apr. 9, 16, 23 & 30; May 7, 14 & 21
