Walking the Mourner’s Path

When someone in our life dies, it affects our entire being. Twice a year, St. John’s offers “Walking the Mourner’s Path,” a six- to eight-week grief support program that is grounded in prayer and reminds us that we are not alone in our grief. In fall 2023, we will be offering this program in partnership with Holy Comforter Episcopal Church.

If you have lost a loved one and have walked the path of grief over the past year or years, “Walking the Mourner’s Path” may be what you need. Open to St. John’s and Holy Comforter members and the community alike, the program gathers participants for a series of small-group workshops. It’s different than a Sunday morning faith formation program, but the format allows time for being still together, sharing stories, and seeing where God is in our grief and in our hope.



The fall 2023 series of workshops will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-7:30 PM. Gatherings will alternate locations, with some being held at St. John’s Episcopal Church and some at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church. Gatherings begin on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, and will be held weekly through Tuesday, November 7, 2023. There is a $65 fee* to cover the cost of the workbook.

You will receive more information after you register, but please feel free to contact Melanie Salsgiver with additional questions or for more details.

*Please note that this cost should not prohibit you from attending. Scholarships are available as needed.
