Grief Support

Grief Support Group

Grief is a journey you do not have to take alone.

If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, you are invited to a peer ministry on grief. People who have lost a loved one meet and share their feelings with each other and learn from each other.

This ministry hosted by St Catherine of Siena in Martinez takes place online on Zoom every Tuesday evening from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

If you have any questions, please call Deacon Dave Holland at 925-413-9240
