Grief Support

Grief Support

St. Jane Frances de Chantal offers a six week grief support series various times throughout the year.  In addition, special sessions are offered during the holidays and monthly between the 6 week sessions. 

The program is designed to offer support to men and women in our Christian community who may be suffering from a death of a loved one.  It is for those who have a need to share their experience of heartache, and would like to walk alongside each other on the path to healing.  Offering a safe haven to cry, to laugh, to mourn and to heal. 

In our six week grief support series, we use a PowerPoint presentation and round table discussion on the stages of grief:  Denial & Isolation, Anger, Bargaining, Depression & Acceptance.   Barb Mezzapelle has been trained as a facilitator for this group.  The program is comprehensive and is supported by the Archdiocese of Detroit.    To learn more about this series you can contact the parish office.
