Sharing the Journey… Grief Over Time

When a person loses someone important to them, they go through a normal process called grieving. Many people think of grief as a single instance or short time of pain or sadness in response to a loss – the like the tears shed at a loved one’s funeral. But grieving include the entire emotional process of coping with a loss and can last a long time. If you have suffered a loss, no matter how long ago, St. Raphael offers a monthly open grief support group. This group provides support, opportunities to meet others who have also lost a loved one and a safe environment to share thoughts feelings and struggles.

Date: Second Wednesday of the month from 7:30-9:00pm
