Grief Support Group

This group tries to meet at least twice a year for a 6 week session. Sessions will last for an hour and a half, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Held in the St. Joseph Church Hall. Please call the parish office for more information at 734-285-9840, ext. 108 to see when the next session will be starting.

What happens at these meetings?

At each session there will be a suggested theme such as grief and health issues or managing anxiety. The sessions are led by Joe Ososkie, a licensed social worker. The main objective is to provide a safe, comfortable environment where people can receive and provide support. Literature and a lending library will be available. Refreshments will also be provided. There is no cost to attend this group. For more information or to sign up, please contact the Parish Office at 734-285-9840, ext. 108.

Here are some additional outreach groups in the community to help you and your family in your time of need…

Sandcastles  Ages 3 – 18

SandCastles Grief Support Program, established in 1997 by Henry Ford Hospice, focuses on the belief that every child and teen deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive, nurturing environment. Grieving youth ages 3 to 18 are offered a safe place where they can interact with peers who have experienced similar losses, learn life-long coping skills, and most importantly begin a healthy healing process.
