Pittsburgh Chapter


The Compassionate Friends - Pittsburgh Chapter is a support community for bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents. We meet once a month (usually the last Sunday of most months) to provide support and fellowship to our grieving members. If you have experienced the death of a child, sibling or grandchild, we are sorry that you happened to find our company, but you are in the right place to connect with others who understand what you are going through. Each member of TCF is a bereaved parent, grandparent, or sibling. We find solace, warmth and comfort here in the compassionate friendship of others, especially in the initial years of grieving and healing.

Chapter News


Monthly Meetings - The church continues to be closed to outside organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, we are planning to hold virtual / online meetings for the rest of 2020 and into 2021.  If restrictions ease and the church once again allows us to meet in person, we will evaluate the feasibility and safety of doing so.  Please check this website or your email for ongoing communications from us regarding any changes to plans for our upcoming meetings.  Please stay safe and healthy!

 

December Candlelight Remembrance Service - The church will remain closed to us in December, which means that we are not able to hold our usual Candlelight Remembrance Service in person this year.  We are planning a virtual program instead, so please check this website and your email for updates to our plans for this annual event.  We mailed a "Save the Date" postcard to our members in early November, with instructions on how to include your loved one's name and picture in our program.  Please contact us if you would like more information on how to do this. All submissions are due by December 5.
