In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
The Loss Group
The Loss Group is a local (East Brady area) group for those who have experienced the loss of someone close and may be looking for others who have experienced similar losses.
The group meets the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 PM in the former parsonage house at 151 Fairmount Road, just north of Chicora. The group is lead by Gayle Wright, a local counselor.
