Grieving A Death During A Pandemic

 

 


The experience of grieving always feels like visiting a foreign place, feeling
disoriented and isolated in the new reality of life without the person we loved.
COVID-19 has increased our isolation as it keeps us from grieving in community.

Let’s come together virtually on Monday, August 3 at 7:30 PM to learn alternative ways to mourn and grieve while we gain comfort from being together.

We will use music, mindfulness, poems, and pictures to honor the loved ones who have died and our own grief. You are invited to have a photo of your loved one(s) to share.

This event is free of charge. Register today and you will receive a Zoom link prior to the event. jcfs.formstack.com/forms/grieving_death_during_pandemic.
