Walking the Mourner's Path is a Christ based, prayer centered, spiritually directed program. It is carefully crafted to focus on one concept per week to allow the participants to work through their grief without feeling overwhelmed. A workbook for each individual provides the framework with prayers, reflections, and exercises for each week, and homework assignments designed to enhance the experience.
Facilitators are not licensed psychological counselors, but are lay ministers specifically trained to lead this program. In no sense do we offer psychological therapy. If you are dealing with grief, are seeking an open format to talk, or need someone to talk with one-on-one please contact Minister for Pastoral Care, Claire Soard at [email protected] and she will be glad to connect you with those resources.

On All Souls Day the Cathedral is open for a personal time of reflection. All are welcome who would like to honor a loss no matter how long ago, or what it is.
There is no formal service or guidance provided so those who come are can use the time as they would like bringing items that you might find helpful during your time such as a Book of Common Prayer, a Bible, a book of poetry, a picture of your loved one, etc. (Registration Required)
