Grief Share Program

01:30 PM — 03:00 PM

Grieving the loss of a loved one can be devastating; it can leave a big hole in one's heart and life; it can leave one not knowing what to do next or how to move forward.  We encourage people to try our Grief Share Program starting Sept 9 at 1:30pm The program consists of 13 weekly sessions and attendance can begin, or end, at any point in the program.  If you are grieving the loss of someone you loved - whether it be recent or from many years ago - or if you were a participant in last year's program and would like to participate again, do consider attending our Grief Share program and allow it to help you in your own journey from mourning to joy.
