Time: 9:45 – 10:45 AM
Instructor: Manoj Padki
We started the Singing Rounds class a year ago, and we have been making
beautiful music every Wednesday from 9:45 to 10:45. We are now expanding
our mandate & doing other styles of music as well. We even did a performance
on December 10 at the Northborough Senior Center Bistro Dinner! What we
need is your voice! Our goal is to sing beautiful music while building camaraderie
and having fun. Please join us!
Presenter: Rev. Sharron Lamothe
When we lose a loved one caused by illness, an accidental traumatic
event or even natural causes, we can expect that we are going to go
through some kind of a grief process. The one whom we have loved so
dearly is no longer with us, so we need to mourn that loss if we are ever
going to move forward with our lives. Our grief and mourning has no
time line or limit. It never moves forward logically or step-by-step, and
we may feel its grip over and over again.
Everyone experiences grief when a loss occurs. There is no way around
it or over it or under it. We must work through it so healing can take
place. This is hard work. A support group is one of the ways to help one
move through the grief process.
Faith and Family Hospice of Marlborough, Ma. is offering a bereavement
support group at the Northborough Senior Center on Bearfoot Road.
We will meet on Thursday, February 6th, we’ll be on break February 13
& 20 and start a new session on February 27 that will run through April
2. Rev. Sharron Lamothe, one of the chaplains with Faith and Family
Hospice, will be the facilitator along with assistance from colleagues
from Faith and Family.
No matter how dark and frightening the winters of struggle have been
after the death of a loved one, we can be assured that spring will always
come birthing new life. It is our hope that if you are experiencing
the loss of a loved one, you will consider attending the bereavement
support group. Then maybe you can begin to feel a sense of peace,
solace and healing in such a difficult time in your life.
