GriefShare: Grief Recovery Support Ministry Volunteers

  • Have you experienced the deep grief of losing a loved one to death?
  • Have you learned valuable lessons and experienced healing from the hurt?
  • Would you like to help others do the same?

Then please call or e-mail to learn more about the different volunteer opportunities with our GriefShare ministry.

Time Commitment

  • Approximately 4 to 5 hours per week
  • Tuesday afternoons: 11:30a to 3:30p (this includes set up time & weekly volunteer meeting prior to participant meeting)
  • Location: parish hall
  • Winter/Spring Cycle: (13 weeks) - February 6 - May 8, 2018 - download schedule HERE
  • Your commitment would be one complete cycle of 13.  For example, if you live in Surprise year-round, we would ask you to commit to the Fall/Winter cycle; Snowbirds, the Winter/Spring cycle. 
  • The reason the Fall/Winter cycle is 14 weeks, rather than 13: we offer a special holiday session, which includes some practical ideas for surviving the deep sorrow and pain people may be experiencing during the holiday season.
