Julie Bucci leads this group (start date to be announced) which shares faith, fellowship and food. Heaven’s Kitchen meets in the church’s kitchen on Wednesdays for four weeks.

Grane Hospice leads a two month group, held at St. Thomas Church, designed for the family members of those who have lost loved ones. How do we deal with the loss of someone who has been an integral part of our lives for years? How do we deal with a loss that feels so acute? This course, using materials from Griefshare, helps. It is offered two or three times a year and meets on Tuesdays. The next Griefshare Group is yet to be announced but meetings usually are from 6pm to 8pm. Call the church office for more information. You can also email Van Brenlove, the bereavement counselor who leads the group, for additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
