Thursdays, March 28 through May 16, 5:30–7:30pm at Pax Christi
The Southwest Grief Coalition (SWGC) is a partnership of local churches working together to provide support and education for those who are grieving. A seven-week spring series, Living and Growing Through Loss, will be hosted here at Pax Christi. The evening will include a light meal, large group education session, and small group supportive sessions designed to offer listening and care to your type of loss. There is no cost to participate and you do not need to attend all sessions. For more information, look for the spring brochure in the kiosk by the reception desk, visit Pax Christi website www.paxchristi.com/grief, or the new SWGC website www.swgriefcoalition.org, which includes links to local grief resources and suggested bibliographies about death. Questions can be directed to Mary Ann Callahan, 952-405-7227.
