Contact us if you are not receiving the link in your inbox each month and would like to join one of these meetings.
We have also created a monthly online meet-up for teens that lost a sibling. It is not required for the teen to have participated in a previous retreat to attend these sessions. This group will be meeting on the first Wednesday of each month starting in 2021.
