EVENTS

Bereavement Day – 3rd Sunday in May
“An opportunity for those caregivers who care for the dying and the bereaved to offer a service of remembrance or special gathering to honour and recognize bereavement as a part of life, not to be forgotten and ignored. It is a chance for grieving individuals to publicly, yet privately, acknowledge their grief with others who are grieving so that they do not feel alone or different.”  BC Bereavement Helpline (BCBH) http://www.bcbh.ca

Blue Christmas Service
Offered at certain churches for those who have experienced a loss, to “help hurting people cope with the holidays”. Check local churches in your area

Honour a Life
“Honour a Life is a night we come together as a community to honour our loved ones and remember those who have passed. Christmas can be a very difficult time for those who have suffered loss, and we hope that this event can offer both peace and fellowship through this difficult time.”  www.kearneyfs.com In Vancouver (at VanDusen) and New Westminster.
