Weekly GriefShare Group Sessions

GriefShare is a recovery support group designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one.

Each weekly GriefShare session is a video seminar featuring some of the nation’s foremost experts on grief recovery topics. Each seminar is combined with a small group discussion time to allow group participants to talk about the content of the seminar and about how they are dealing with the death of their loved one.

The GriefShare group sessions held at St. Vincent Ferrer are facilitated by caring parishioners from our grief ministry team who have experienced grief and want to help you through the difficult days ahead. Since 2014, this ministry has walked the GriefShare journey “From Mourning to Joy” with over 60 participants.

Although the program does follow a topic sequence, you are welcome to begin attending sessions at any point – you do not have to wait until the next scheduled series begins. We encourage new participants to either call ahead or arrive 15 minutes early for their first session.
