We welcome you to GriefShare! At our FaithWestwood GriefShare group you will find a warm, friendly place where we understand your grief journey because we have also traveled the journey of grief.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. PLEASE CONTACT VIKKI O'HARA BY PHONE, TEXT OR EMAIL TO INDICATE THAT YOU PLAN TO ATTEND.

Sessions will be cancelled due to inclement weather if FaithWestwood cancels Sunday services. However, please use your best judgment regarding driving conditions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All sessions will meet on Sunday afternoons. The first session will meet from 12 noon to 2 PM to allow time for introductions, etc. The remaining sessions (except the special “Surviving the Holidays” session - which will also meet from 12 noon to 2 PM) will meet from noon to 1:30 PM. A LIGHT LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED AT ALL SESSIONS., along with ice and bottled water. Please plan to bring your own beverage of choice if other than water.
