Mission/Vision   TCF Credo   Siblings Walking Together

 The Compassionate Friends - Pittsburgh Chapter provides support for people whose children, grandchildren, or siblings have passed away.  Monthly meetings are usually held on the last Sunday of every month, with some exceptions.  More information on our meetings can be found here.  Home meetings (hosted by our members, for our members), are held occasionally.  Please see our Membership page for information on becoming a member of our chapter.
  Upcoming Meetings
Next monthly meeting: Our next meeting will be held on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at Bower Hill Community Church. Details can be found on our Monthly Meetings page.
The Butterfly Release WILL take place this Sunday, September 9th regardless of weather conditions.  Due to weather concerns, our current plan is to hold the program indoors in the church sanctuary (like we do for the Candlelight Service) and then have refreshments in Fellowship Hall where members will be able to pick up their butterflies to take home to release. 
However, because weather predictions and conditions can change hourly, we ask that you please still come prepared to be outdoors if weather permits, as this is always our preference if feasible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to do what is in the best interest of our members and presenters and what is necessary for the well-being of the butterflies!
Next home meetings: September 20, October 18, November 15 and December 20. Visit our Home Meetings page for details.
