The Lower Mainland Grief Recovery Society (LMGRS) invites you to our Annual General Meeting (AGM).
This event will be held on June 28, 2023 via Zoom and starts at 6pm and will have a special guest.
If you are interested in attending please email us at: email@example.com
Our AGM presenter this year will be Megan Sheldon, a cultural mythologist, secular celebrant and end of life doula. Megan is the co-founder of Seeking Ceremony, where she creates and convenes ceremonies for others, and Be Ceremonial, the world’s first DIY ceremony app that empowers you to acknowledge significant moments and milestones across the life cycle.
Join us as we explore the role of ritual in grief and loss, inspiring you with tangible ways to create ceremony for yourself, your family, and your community.
Blue Christmas Service

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. Offered by Kearney’s Funeral Home
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
