Surviving the Holidays
Monday. November 30, 2020 @ 6:30-8:30 pm via ZOOM
We are conscious that many grieving folks dread holiday time, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years cannot be recreated.
“Surviving the Holidays” is a one time 2-hour gathering that offers support for people as they face challenging situations and circumstances associated with the holiday season. Participant booklets at a cost of $10 to defray costs will be available to pick up at the church-kindly call Katharine at 905 477 1991 to arrange a time.
To register, please go to griefshare.org, enter your postal code, click on ‘Find a holiday event’, click on the St. Philip’s-on-the-hill notice, and enter your information.
Come as you are. God bless you and your family.
GriefShare at SPOTH – Fall 2020
We will be offering our fourth 13-week GriefShare (GS) program, for the first time ‘on-line’. This will involve new ways of sharing information and being with one another. For this reason, we are adding an Introductory session on Tuesday, October 13, 2020. Thereafter, sessions will occur weekly up to and including Tuesday, December 22, 2020, break for the Christmas and New Year period, and resume on Tuesday, January 5, 2020 for the remaining 3 weeks.
GS is a Christian based program of bereavement support. Regardless, people of different faiths or no faith are welcome. Participants before you have reported great insight from the program information, comfort in the companionship of others in a similar life situation, and reference to the workbook. Contact Katharine Crowe (905-477-1991) to arrange pickup of your workbook at St. Philip’s before October 13, and leave $25 as you are able. .
We recommend a period of a few months from the death of your loved one to be able to optimally participate in a support group. Kindly note that registration is limited to 8 participants.
Please come as you are. Thanks for your time.
