As the holidays approach, many of us will gather with family and friends. More often than not, these gatherings will include reminiscences about loved ones, re-telling of funny family stories, and the sharing of traditions honored year after year. This emphasis on remembrance, so welcomed during joyful times, can be quite difficult for those coping with loss. For family, friends, and neighbors who are facing grief after the death of a loved one, the holidays may instead be a time filled with pain and sadness. Even for those for whom grief is not as fresh, the holidays may serve as an annual reminder of the loss—not only of that person but of tradition and celebration.
If you or someone you know may be struggling with issues related to loss, we encourage you to attend this event especially designed for you. There will be two dynamic facilitators providing coping skills for those dealing with grief during the holidays and issues such as loneliness and separation brought on by COVID-19.
Please join the Health Ministry and invite others to join you on Sunday, December 5th, 1 pm – 2 pm as we have an age-appropriate discussion with trained professionals who will walk us through the grieving process. Please register before November 28 by emailing your name and age to email@example.com or by leaving a message at 517-882-8012 ext. 54.
(Sunday) 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
