Grief is a universal experience
St. Edward is part of the Bloomington-Richfield Grief Support Coalition which provides support and education for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. Each session will begin in the Social Hall with an educational presentation. Guest speakers share their own experiences and professional knowledge on grief and loss. Small groups will be formed following the presentation. Participants will have the opportunity to share their feelings and concerns with others who are also working through the grief process.
