The number of families we serve continues to graw each year, and we strive to offer services for families in the weeks and months after the funeral along with programs for the general public. We have reviewed and evaluated our support programs, and we are pleased to announce that we have added new programs and will continue to host the most popular programs from previous years. O'Leary grief services include books and resources for both children and adults, support groups, informational groups and one-on-one private appointments for grief information and support. Staff is also available to speak to groups of all ages on topics that include death, dying, grief and loss, end of life issues, funeral planning and the many options available when planning a memorial service or funeral. For more information on any of the programs, to arrange for a speaker, or to schedule a one-on-one appointment, please call Jeanne at 981-0700 or email Jeanne@olearyfs.com. Information will be published in this newspaper, will be available on the O'Leary website and Facebook page. It's always a good idea to check those sources or call to confirm the dates and times each month. GRIEF SERIES--The O'Leary Three-Week Grief Series is designed for people who have recently lost a loved one. The program will help you understand grief and loss, and offer ideas on ways to adapt to your world without your loved one. This program is offered in March and October. ARCHER--Archer is a follow up to the Grief Series for those who want a few more sessions to help them move forward in their new life. Archer is offered in April and November. MERRY WIDOWS-- Has your spouse died? Would you like to get together with others in a similar situation? Join us for this informal group as we enjoy a meal and conversation. Dates and times vary, so call for details. GRIEF GROUP--This popular group meets monthly, and offers insight and information for those recovering from the loss of a family member or friend. It is a safe, non-judgmental and confidential time to share (if you choose to share), learn, and receive support. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at O'Leary's. LUNCH AND LEARN--O'Leary's will offer two lunch and learn programs. Everyone is invited to a free lunch and short program. The first lunch and learn will be Wednesday, April 18 and the second program will be held in October. The April discussion will be "I'm Dead, Now What?" It will include information on funeral planning and the many decisions that must be made quickly when someone dies. MEMORIAL SERVICE--The O'Leary Memorial Service honors those we have served in the past year. The 2018 Memorial Service will be held Sunday, June 3rd at 4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend. TURKEY, TINSEL AND TEARS--This very special group offers information for families who are facing holidays for the first time without a loved one present. Attendees will get information on planning for the holidays and ideas to find moments of joy while experiencing the pain of grief. The 2018 program will be held on Sunday, November 4th at 1:00 p.m. Knights of Columbus Dinner Dance and Auction On Saturday, February 10th, the Norwalk Knights of Columbus will hold their annual Dinner Dance & Auction.
