The death of someone deeply loved is experienced by every human at some time while on this earth. The grieving process that follows can be physically, emotionally, and even spiritually devastating, but human beings who find a support group can also discover that the journey from mourning to joy is possible. That is the precept behind the 14-week bereavement program sponsored by the Boerne office of Alamo Hospice for people in the Hill Country area. New small groups are always forming and you are encouraged to find one that will fit your schedule.


The Boerne office of Alamo Hospice offers three groups to support grieving people in the Hill Country area:

Mondays at 1:00 PM, Kronkosky Senior Center

Tuesdays at 10:00 AM, St. John Lutheran Church


The faith-based curriculum “GriefShare” is intended for adults of any age who have lost a loved one within the last year or so, but the grieving process knows no timetable; if you or someone you know needs the assurance and support a bereavement group offers, please consider coming regardless of how long it has been. “The only cure for grief is to grieve.” (Earl Grollman).

Please call Boerne’s Alamo Hospice office at 830.816.5024 to register or Connie Harbers at 512.779.5508 with any questions.
