GriefShare: Support for those grieving

You may go to the GriefShare website for other wonderful resources and additional locations and  class times being offered in your area.

Our next 12-week session begins on Thursday, January 24. Please note that this session will be during the day. At St. Matthew: Thursdays, 12:30-2:30 pm.

The class is open to anyone that has experienced the death of a loved one.

Each topic is self contained so you do not have to attend in sequence and includes a brief video seminar, followed by supportive group discussion. Please call or email Kathy if you have any questions.

Cost is free, but pre-registration is required by January 3rd by contacting the church office at 763-788-9427 or emailing Kathy Rosenberg, Parish Nurse, at

We look forward to offering our support in your journey of Grief.
