Grief Support Group
St. Thomas invites anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one to a six-week Grief Support Group. This is typically held one day per week in the evening in the Fall.
If you or someone you care about has been suffering from the loss of a spouse or other loved one, you are invited to participate. This will be a structured program which includes some educational information on how to understand our overwhelming feelings of loss and develop coping skills to better deal with them. It will also provide a safe and caring support group and an opportunity to share our own personal memories and issues.
The goal of these groups is to provide our community with a support vehicle to deal with the difficulties and emotional turbulence that follows the death of a loved one. Grief is a normal human process that all people experience. The healthiest healing involves a process of working through the pain. We grieve most effectively when we find ourselves with others who understand and are willing to hear our pain. The groups will provide a safe, confidential place to share individual memories, thoughts, and experiences and find healing moving forward.
