The Kent Island Bay Times - - Senior Satellite -

CENTREVILLE — Mother’s Day may be a dif­fi­cult time for those who have lost their mother, even if they lost their mother many years ago. Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice is of­fer­ing a work­shop for any­one 18 and older who have lost their moth­ers on Satur­day, May 5, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter, 255 Comet Drive in Centreville.

The work­shop will be co-fa­cil­i­tated by Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice grief coun­selors Ann OCon­nor, LCSW-C, and Linda Turner, MS. Par­tic­i­pants will en­joy a light brunch, spe­cial ac­tiv­ity and time of fel­low­ship. The work­shop fee is $10.

“The work­shop is to pre­pare in­di­vid­u­als who are griev­ing such a loss for the up­com­ing hol­i­day in a way that is per­sonal and re­flec­tive,” said OCon­nor. “It is a way to con­nect with oth­ers ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar emo­tions and ex­plore and ex­press grief through a creative art ac­tiv­ity. It of­fers a safe and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment to re­mem­ber and cel­e­brate their moth­ers.”
