Shadyside Presbyterian Church Care and Support Ministries offers a Grief Support Group designed to provide encouragement and a faith-centered perspective for those who have lost a loved one.

The group meets periodically to discuss a variety of subjects that are important in the grief recovery process, including the variety of emotions which grief brings, and resources for moving forward. Sessions are led by a pastor or grief counselor and an experienced grief support facilitator. New participants are always welcome to join; there is no cost to attend the group, which is a ministry sponsored by the Board of Deacons.

For more information about upcoming gatherings of the Grief Support Group, contact Rev. Lynn Portz.
