Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice invites the community to remember and celebrate their loved ones at Hope for the Holidays, a holiday grief support program, on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 3 pm, at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church (1801 St. Paris Pike, Springfield, OH 45504).
For those experiencing their first holiday season following the loss of a loved one, the emotions of the holidays can be overwhelming. Hope for the Holidays provides the opportunity for those who are grieving to honor and remember their loved ones. The program is open to any member of the community who is experiencing grief.
“The holidays can be stressful even in the best of times. While grieving, that stress and grief can be particularly challenging and trigger memories and longings for the past,” said Susan Good, bereavement counseling professional at Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice. “We are honored and privileged to host the Hope for the Holidays program to all members of our community to remember and honor loved ones this holiday season.”
Hope for the Holidays is available from Pathways of HopeSM Grief Counseling Centers, a grief and bereavement service of Ohio’s Hospice. The event is free of charge thanks to the generosity of the community.
Because of limited seating, reservations are required and will be accepted until Dec. 5 or until capacity is reached, whichever comes first. To register, call 937.258.4991. When making reservations, please indicate the number of attendees. To register online, visit: https://www.communitymercyhospice.org/event/2022-hope-for-the-holidays/
