Upcoming Event...  IN TROY: MASS, SUNDAY,  JUNE 22nd, 2:30PM AT CHRIST OUR LIGHT CATHOLIC CHURCH 3077 Gloucester, which is located just south of Big Beaver (16 Mile) and Coolidge Hwy (on the west side). Widowed Friends will meet for Mass and Friendship. Volunteers are needed to assist with Masses and refreshments following the Masses. If you are interested in lending a helping hand please call Gerry. (See newsletter for contact information).

Sharing your experience and listening to the experiences of others who have lost a spouse, can assist the widowed in dealing with their loss and can help them transition into a new life.  We each cope with loss in our own way and in our own time.  The emotional pain of losing a spouse can be devastating.  Grief changes over time and within each individual’s own time table, however, it is beneficial in the healing process to share one’s own experience with the help of a support group.



Widowed of all ages and faiths, and at any time in their grief, are encouraged to attend our support group sessions and seminars.  Many topics related to grief are covered including understanding the stages of grief, surviving stress and loneliness, feelings of denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, and depression.  Strategies for coping are explored and shared.  The spiritual elements of grief and healing are also covered. 



Please join us for one of our support group programs and grief support seminars. Dates will be posted in the current newsletter as they become scheduled.  For more information call Rose at 586-726-0844 or email widowedfriendsaod@gmail.com.



FACILITATOR TRAINING

In order to conduct our grief support programs, Widowed Friends members volunteer their time by hosting these sessions.  We welcome members who are willing to facilitate a six week program in their community.   For more information call Rose at 586-726-0844 or email widowedfriendsaod@gmail.com.
