Friends of com­pas­sion

If you or your loved one are cur­rently in a sea­son of griev­ing, we would like to in­vite you to our pi­lot pro­ject – a grief sup­port group en­ti­tled “Friends of Com­pas­sion.” A mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary group of lead­ers in the town of Port aux Basques have re­al­ized this need and are mak­ing our first steps to­wards meet­ing that need. In times of loss, a per­son must be re­minded that griev­ing is nat­u­ral, nec­es­sary, and not a unique ex­pe­ri­ence – even when grief is unique to you, you are not alone. We hope to see you on Mon., Oct. 17 at 7 p.m., at Ho­tel Port aux Basques. For more in­for­ma­tion, please call 709-694-2422 or 709-636-2511.
