screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-8-07-32-amThis peer support group is for children in grades K-8 who have experienced a deep, personal loss, usually the loss of a parent through separation, divorce, or death.

Groups meet on Thursday evenings, 6:15-7:15 p.m., for nine weeks in the fall and eight weeks in the winter.

Parishioners serving in this ministry receive training and are provided with plans, materials, and resources to facilitate the groups. The only requirement is a love for children and a desire to be a loving listener.

If you have a child who would benefit from the Rainbows program or wish to volunteer as a group facilitator, please Barry O’Donnell. More information about the Rainbows program can be found at rainbows.org.
