Support for those experiencing loss in their lives

Growing Through Loss is a grief and loss support ministry jointly sponsored by the North Suburban Grief Support Coalition, of which Prince of Peace Church is a member. The coalition hosts two, six-week series each year that address both the educational aspects, as well as the support needs, around a variety of loss and grief issues. Each session begins with an educational presentation by a professional from the community, followed by small groups facilitated by leaders who understand the grieving process.

“Grief: A Journey” presented by Linda Cherek; Licensed Therapist, Educator, Consultant and Author; kicks off the fall series on Monday, Sept. 16.

This is the first of six consecutive Monday sessions, held through Oct. 21, at the Catholic Community of St. Odilia, 3495 N. Victoria, Shoreview, MN  55126.

Each weekly session begins with registration at 6:45 pm, followed by a professional speaker at 7 p.m., with small group gatherings from 8 to 9 p.m. There is no fee, but donations are welcome. Free childcare is available, but please call a week in advance so they are ready for the children.
