Grief Support


grief1St. Olaf and the Downtown Coalition for Grief Support provide education and support for those grieving the death of a loved one.

Nine sponsoring churches make up the coalition and host the grief meetings.

The aim of the coalition is to provide a respectful, caring atmosphere, inclusive of all faiths.

Excellent speakers, trained facilitators and a group of others who have experienced loss make these sessions a place of healing.

It is possible to walk the path of grief alone. However, the companionship of others wounded by loss is tremendously consoling and powerfully healing.

Meetings are held every Saturday from 9:45 – 11:30 am.
9:30-10:00 am: Refreshments and check-in
10:00-10:30 am: Educational presentation
10:30-11:30 am: Three discussion groups for loss of a spouse, child or family member/friend

From January through April, meetings will be hosted by the Basilica of St. Mary.

You can join the group at any time. A small weekly donation is gratefully accepted.
