Chaplains and Religious Life

New from the OCRL - Faculty and Staff Grief Support Group

The Office of the Chaplains is offering a pilot project for grief support in response to multiple requests received.

Illustration of a treeThe Chaplain of the University, Reverend Janet Cooper Nelson and Dr. Mika MacInnis will convene this informal group that will be neither clinical nor religious in form. Those who may wish to participate are welcome to register through March 2nd.

The Grief Support Group first sequence of meetings will be on Thursdays: March 3, 10 and 17 at noon. The experience of the first group will enable us better to assess size, structure, and timing for future sessions. This first group will be capped at 10 people, and we do ask those registering to commit to attend all 3 in-person sessions.

Those who request registration will receive a confirmation including a few more details and the location for the group's meetings. This Faculty and Staff Grief Support Group is sponsored by the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life.
