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 Our Lady of Peace continues even as we can not 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.

DUE TO COVID-19, WE HAVE STARTED SOME ONLINE BEREAVEMENT EVENTS WHILE OTHERS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  

If you are looking for support please call our bereavement coordinator, Amy Cotter, 651.789.5032

—Supportive calls, cards and memorial rose
—Support groups at Our Lady of Peace and within the community
