Starting in October 2022, the new widow’s group that was forming will be joining forces with the Mourning Glories group to make one cohesive group for widows and widowers. We have chosen a new name and will be known as Widowed Friends. We hope this name will be welcoming to men as well as to women, and that it will let people know who our group is for. All newly widowed as well as those further along on this path are welcome. Most of us know that when we lose a spouse our social groups can change. We all have a need to find and connect with others like ourselves who are now navigating life alone. We hope to make this group supportive and fun. We welcome you to our meetings and look forward to your ideas and suggestions to help make this a wonderful group of Widowed Friends!

Meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month at 4:30 p.m. in the parish library. Contacts:
