Grief Support

There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they are gone, the light remains.

Grief support at OLP continues even as we cannot meet in person. Our Lady of Peace is committed to supporting hospice patients and their caregivers through the bereavement and grief journey.  All bereavement services are offered free of charge unless indicated otherwise and open to the public.

Do you have questions, are you looking for support, or need to register for an event?

Memorial Teddy Bear

Memorial bears are a keepsake that is made in honor of the special person you have lost. Volunteers use materials from your loved one to create a bear that is as unique as they were.

Here is what one family member said about the bear program: “The bears are just precious. Louise did such a great job on them. She put a lot of thought and detail into making them. I like the little pocket with a verse in them and the jointed arms and legs. I have them setting on a little bench and when I walk by I can see Roger and Mark in those outfits. That’s a wonderful program you offer. Their so big, too. I was impressed. Thanks so much for getting me in touch with this program.”
