Widows Ministry

Widow Ministry is here to support and help those widows who would like to meet other widows and share the difficulties they may be facing or anything they may be experiencing. These are times of uncertainty. Being alone is a challenging experience but we have faced it. Sharing what we have done-and can do is a way of healing. In numbers, there is strength. Widows Ministry will meet first Wednesday of every month.
