Grief Follow-up

St. Edward’s Grief Ministers (trained Stephen Ministers) provide one-on-one telephone support to grieving family members following the funeral of one of our parishioners. The ministers provide options to the grieving and can direct them to additional support if needed. Please contact Mia Ah Sani in the parish office at 952-835-7101 x223 or at mahsani@stedwardschurch.org.

Grief Support

Bloomington-Richfield Grief Support Coalition

Grief is a universal experience. Churches in Bloomington and Richfield work together to provide support and education for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. Group meetings are held on Thursdays from 4:30-6:00pm. Each session includes an educational presentation followed by small group sharing of concerns and experiences. Specially trained facilitators lead the groups. Individuals may join the group at any time and may register before a meeting begins. There is no fee. Free-will offerings are accepted. Find more information at brgriefcoalition.com.
