Bereavement Support Groups

“This world may bring deep darkness, but we are the bearers of light.
We’ll join our flames together, and shine in the blackest of nights.”
John Mark Green

Bereavement Support Groups

Our no-cost groups led by our specialized counsellors, meet weekly for two hour sessions over the period of six weeks. These groups focus on various themes, exploring the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of grief. They provide a safe space for individuals who have experienced similar relational losses to discuss coping strategies and access valuable resources.

Registration is required.
