Bereavement Support Group

A Journey from Grief to Healing

For those of us who are coping with the loss of a loved one, a bereavement support group is being formed at St. Francis Xavier. The support group provides an opportunity for a grieving person to be listened to, understood, and nurtured.

If you feel the desire to have others walk beside you on your grief journey, please consider joining the Bereavement Support Group. The group will meet on the last Tuesday of the month @ 4:00pm in the church.

For any questions, please feel free to contact the SFX office by phone: (815) 609-8077 or email:
