The Circle of Weavers Grief Support Group

First Thursday of each month
6:30-8 PM

Please join us every first Thursday of the month for The Circle of Weavers - a grief support group for younger widows.

6:30-8 PM at Monona Lutheran Church, 5511 Monona Drive, Madison, WI.

The Circle of Weavers is a grief support group for women whose partner has died. The untimeliness of the death can present unique challenges for younger widows that may be different than their older counterparts.

Women in our groups are typically between 25-65 years of age and have experienced the death between one month to 8 years ago. We split into two groups to serve the needs of attendees.

The Circle of Weavers is a supportive, informal drop-in peer support group facilitated by a grief counselor.
