There are a variety of grief programs offered throughout the Diocese.  Many use the Diocesan resource, “Grief Matters” by Dr. Bill Webster. DVD’s, videos and participant guides are available through our office. There are other excellent resources available through the Diocesan Library.

  • Please call Teresa Hartnett at 905-528-7988 ext. 2250 for recommendations for your parish needs. 

You are free to attend all sessions in both programs or any one or more you can. Please call Family Ministry 905-528-7988 ext. 2249 to register. 

This is a 6-week video program using Dr. Bill Webster’s “Grief Matters”. 

This or other grief programs are also offered by some parishes in the Diocese and are usually run by volunteers who are trained through our office.
