Walking the Mourner’s Path

When someone in our life dies, the resonance affects our entire being. This Lent, St. John’s will offer “Walking the Mourner’s Path,” an 8-week grief support program that is grounded in prayer and reminds us that God is present in our pain and we are not alone in our grief.

Walking the Mourner’s Path is different than counseling. The program consists of eight weekly small group workshops. It is spiritually directed and guided by trained facilitators and clergy. All participants who attend the program will find a safe and spirit-filled place to journey in their grief.

Here’s what Jay Morgan-Schleuning, former parishioner and friend of St. John’s had to say about his experience with the program.

“Walking the Mourner’s Path helped me heal when my mother died during our transition from Tallahassee to Orlando. Father Dave had recommended the program when I saw our new church was offering it. It provides a safe place to process your grief and connect with God as you walk the path with others. If you are struggling with a loss, I highly recommend Walking the Mourner’s Path.”

Workshops will take place on Tuesdays in Lent (February 23 through April 13) from 7-8:30 p.m. on Zoom. There is a $60 fee to cover the workbook, but this cost should not prohibit you from attending; scholarships are available, as needed.
