The Compassionate Friends is a non-profit, self-help support organization for families who are grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause. There are no dues or fees and all bereaved family members are welcome.

TCF exists to support and assist bereaved parents, siblings and other family members in the positive resolution of their grief, and to foster their physical and emotional health. Monthly chapter meetings offer friendship, caring and a safe place to talk. Monthly newsletters and caring friends offer telephone support.

The secret of TCF's success is simple: As seasoned grievers reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal. The vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.

 

MEETING INFORMATION:

Houston Inner Loop Chapter meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except in December) at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin, Houston, Texas 77004, in the Fireside Room.

Next Monthly Support Group Meeting: TUESDAY, MAY 19, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

Topic: Butterfly Memorial Release and Pot Luck Dinner

Time: 6:30 p.m. dinner begins (bring loved one's favorite dish by 6:15 p.m.) and ceremony at 7:00 p.m.

Location: First Unitarian Universalist Church, CHANNING HALL, 5200 Fannin, Houston, TX 77004

Individual butterflies in boxes will be supplied to each person/family at no cost.

Our dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. so please bring your dish (and utensils if needed) between 6:00 and 6:15 p.m. Drinks, paper goods and flatware will be provided. The ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the courtyard at the front of the church building. The program will include inspirational music, poetry readings and a loving release of the butterflies with whispers of love. The butterfly, a symbol of transformation, suggests an image that is mild and gentle, one that can touch the heart during difficult times and times of strength.

You are welcome to invite family and friends to this gathering, which is an opportunity for our bereaved families to connect with each other and share about our loved ones.
