Bereavement Support Group

Dear ones,

Our community has experienced so much loss in the past few years! The lay ministers are offering a bereavement support group for people whose spouses or partners have died. We are fortunate to have Joan Caplan as the group facilitator. Joan is a FUUSNite and a professional grief counselor.  The group will begin as a non-commitment, drop-in group; participants will help decide and shape the ongoing nature and structure of the group.

Our first meeting will be Monday, October 16, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Alliance Room.  The other meetings will be in the Chapel on Saturday mornings, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m., on these dates:

Oct. 28
Nov. 18
Nov. 25
Dec. 16
Dec. 30

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me (, 617-901-6848). If you would like to participate, please contact Joan (, 617-584-3996). -Cindy Orrell, for the lay ministers
