Support Groups

Hospice Atlanta offers grief groups to anyone in the community on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month from 2:00-3:30PM at The Cathedral of St. Philip located at 2744 Peachtree Road Northwest in Atlanta, Georgia. The groups are open to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one and registration is not required.

The location of the group is held in the Lanier House. After turning into the Cathedral from Peachtree Road, look for the building on the right in the parking lot that is facing the entrance to the Cathedral. There is a small sign located on the edge of the lot that shows the direction of the Lanier House.

For questions and further information, please call (404) 869-3072 during business hours Monday through Friday.

Our Bereavement Coordinators are available by phone for grief support and counseling during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Please call (404) 869-3000 and ask to speak with someone in the Bereavement Department.
