Walking the Mourners Path is a unique ministry which started with the question, “where is God in my pain” and the recognition that in many faith communities there is an unmet need for an effective ministry for those in grief.  The ministry is based on workshops that are Christ-centered and scripture based.  Through the series of workshops, the participants learn they are not alone in their grief and with the ever presence of Christ’s love, healing occurs. The workshops meet  with two trained facilitators and a member of the clergy.  Each session with prayers, exercises, reflections, and homework in a workbook the group walks the mourner’s path.

Faith communities that offer the ministry identify at least two individuals to attend a Walking the Mourner's Path Facilitator Training School. Although clergy are not required to attend a Facilitator Training School, many have found their involvement in the training meaningful and are glad they participated. 

At the training, participants learn how to implement the program by building on existing Pastoral Care ministries.  Additionally, the training includes modules on: Facilitating and Listening skills, Understanding Grief, and the Eight Week Workshops.  During the training, participants will experience the workshops and have an opportunity to co-facilitate a workshop to practice their facilitating skills.
