Faith & Grief Ministry


The loss of a loved one leaves us seeking answers to questions about grief and our culture is often unhelpful when making our way through the maze of feelings that we experience. Grief truly is a journey of emotions as well as physical and social changes. If you have experienced a loss and find yourself needing a safe place to process your grief, join us for a monthly luncheon or 6-week workshop where you can share your story and pose your questions, a place where you can find comfort among others who understand.

In Richardson and North Dallas, Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, First Presbyterian Church of Richardson, St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church, and Bentwood Trail Presbyterian Church are working together to sponsor Faith & Grief workshops and luncheons.

Faith & Grief workshops and luncheons are open to anyone seeking a faith-focused approach to the grieving process or searching for a place to talk with others coping with loss. All workshops and luncheons are offered free of charge. Food is provided at all luncheons. Paricipants may choose to make a small donation to help offset the cost of food.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: Faith & Grief welcomes volunteers to serve as Table Hosts during its monthly luncheons. No experience necessary. Please contact Janice Fandrick for details.

About Faith and Grief:

The mission of Faith and Grief is to provide ongoing comfort to persons who have experienced the death of a loved one. Rev. Wendy Fenn and Rev. Dr. Fran Shelton launched the program in 2008 at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church of Dallas. Since then, hundreds of people have participated in Faith and Grief workshops and luncheons.
