Georgetown University Bereavement Support Group

Thursday, October 26 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm more dates through January 31, 2019

Makom Gathering Space in Leavey Conference Center, North Hallway down from Cosi and Starbucks Leavey Conference Center on Main Campus

All members of our community experience life changes, often very unexpectedly, some very unhappy and coinciding with other major changes like starting your Freshman year, beginning a career at Georgetown. May I introduce you to the weekly University Bereavement Group, a year-round service (Fall, Spring, Summer) open to all University employees (staff, faculty, AAP's, temps) and graduate/undergraduate students. We meet every week on Thursdays, 1:00–2:00 PM at the Jewish Center's Makom Gathering Space located in the Leavey Center on the same hallway as Cosi and Starbucks. This group is simply a "circle of care" open to those in our University community who are experiencing grief from the recent or not so recent loss of a family member, close friend, or associate. Sponsored by Campus Ministry, participants find comfort, support, and lifted spirits in the short time spent weekly or occasionally with the group. New members are welcome any week of the year, especially at the start of a new semester. For more information, please contact: Anne Ridder, 202-687-5706,, 225 ICC.
