A four-week commitment is required. The group will meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, June 7 to 28, on the John & Cathy Belcher Campus, 90 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, Maryland.

Two groups will be meeting both in-person and virtually:

Attendance restrictions and requirements will be updated using the most recent Centers for Disease Control guidelines and organizational policies prior to each event. Childcare is not provided, and children are not permitted in any of these groups.

The following group will meet virtually via Zoom for Healthcare:

• Loss of Life Partner/Spouse Monthly Morning Group is for individuals grieving the death of a spouse or life partner. It will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon on the second Wednesday of the month, April 13, May 11 and June 8.

Acknowledging that not everyone has access to this technology or may not be comfortable with it, the center suggests people call or email the office and grief professionals will work with individuals to help them find other appropriate resources if needed.
