  • GriefShare is support group meets on the first, third, and fifth Tuesday of the month, from 3-4:30p.m. or 6:30-8 p.m. in room 204, led by the Rev. Sharon O’Connor. The class is designed to inform and support those grieving through the use of DVDs, testimonials and discussion in a confidential, safe environment.
