After the loss of a loved one, the holiday season can be touched with a bittersweet sadness. How do you handle the various celebrations and events? How do you include the person you have lost in your celebration?
At Oliver’s, we have two programs to support grieving families during the Christmas season.
Our Christmas Candlelight Service is a time for us to remember together those we have lost and honour them during the Christmas season.
Surviving The Holidays While Grieving is a helpful, encouraging, seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death.
Christmas Candlelight Service
Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 6:00 pm, at Oliver’s Funeral Home.
The lighting of candles and singing of carols has long been a powerful symbol of remembrance. Each year, Oliver’s Funeral Home hosts a Christmas Candlelight service to remember those we have lost and honour their memory.
This service will include:
- A memorial tribute video
- Lighting of candles for those we have lost
- Special music numbers
- A message of hope
We hope that this simple, time-honoured gesture may provide a way of healing the past and bringing music back into your hearts. After the program, please join us for a time of fellowship and refreshments served in our Tea Room.
Surviving The Holidays While Grieving
Tuesday, December 6, 2022, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, at Oliver’s Funeral Home
This event provides tips and concrete strategies for handling your grief while celebrating the holidays. This is for both young and old alike. We all have grief and stress this year that we can learn how to handle better during the next few months.
Those who attend will receive a Survival Guide filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.
We sincerely hope you are able to join us.
