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.
