Grief & Gratitude – A Pathway to Healing
October 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
New West Hospice Society is hosting a Community Memorial at the Anvil Centre on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
Human beings are social beings who instinctively need to gather to mourn collectively, acknowledging and responding to their individual losses publicly. That’s why we have funerals or memorials when someone dies and why there has been additional grief during the pandemic as we try to cope with a long list of losses but no way to gather and acknowledge them. It will be a ‘Come and Go’ event where togetherness is still possible without forming a large crowd.
