Grief/Loss Support Group
Parishes/vicariates may offer support groups to those who have experienced the death of a loved one or suffer from one of the many losses experienced in daily life. Support group leader helps participants understand the grief process, accept the reality of the loss, suggests ways of releasing grief, and suggests methods of emotional/spiritual healing so that participants may re-emerge into a new way of living. Participants have the opportunity to share and discuss their struggles and feelings. The Archdiocese of Detroit Office of Marriage and Family sponsors Bereavement Training Workshops to workshop to help parishes launch a Ministry of Consolation ministry.
