Women’s Support Group

 

Women’s Support Group

We value our long-term participants and we welcome new participants.We meet at UUSS on Wednesday afternoons, 1:30-3:30, virtually every week with occasional misses for holidays. Currently we meet in Room 11, but anticipate a move to Room 12 in the Autumn.

We have no set discussion topics; we share our individual joys and sorrows and then let the discussion flow from there.

Women of all ages are welcome. Membership in UUSS is not required. The number and individual participants vary from week to week. Usually the group has about eight women but sometimes is smaller or larger.

We keep the names of participants confidential. We find it valuable to honor our Covenant.
