The Widows' Well

Historically, a well has been a place where women have gathered in community and could

draw not only water but encouragement from one another. Here, widows can come together

in a safe and nurturing environment that will allow them to continue to grow and learn in this season of life. It’s a place where women can say the name of their late husband and feel that others understand what it feels like to lose someone so close. Contact: Annie-Claude | ext 1300

Third Sundays, 12:45pm

A group for men journeying together after the death of their spouse.
