Grief Support Groups -
offered in conjunction with Friends of Hospice


We all react differently to a loss of a loved one. Whatever the cause of their death, we are never quite prepared for the flood of emotions and the feeling of brokenness within. No matter where you are in your grief, a bereavement support group can support you in finding hope and resources to help along your journey.

New sessions begin in September. (see below)


Grief 101- "Finding Healing and Hope as You Navigate through Your Grief Journey" is for individuals who have not previously been in a grief support group.


Friday Morning Group                      Friday Mid-Morning Group

     9:30-11:00am                                             11:30-1:00

Location: First Congregational Church of Litchfield, 21 Torrington Rd., Litchfield

Grief 102 - "Finding Meaning: The 6th Stage of Grief"  is designed for folks who have been involved in a grief group (or in formal counseling) in the past, and who are looking for continued grief support, creating meaning from the death of their loved ones while moving forward in their lives.
