Memorial Services and Workshops


 Celebration of Light Memorial Service

Each December, this memorial service brings light and warmth to the winter season. During this time of gathering we remember our loved ones with music, readings, reflections and a candle-lighting ritual that highlights the importance of light in six major faith traditions.  We also provide the opportunity for you light a candle for your loved one as we collectively honor their life.

Please see this “Celebration of Light” flyer and invitation link to this year’s memorial service.

Afternoon of Remembrance Memorial Service

In May, with the ushering in of Memorial Day, graduations, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day we are often reminded of the absence of our loved one.  As a way to honor those special people whose absence we miss dearly, Pathways offers a time to come together to foster renewal and growth through music, readings, reflections and collectively creating a large flower bouquet.

Please see this “Afternoon of Remembrance” flyer for details regarding this year’s memorial service.


Pathways offers a workshop each October called Pathways Through the Holidays.  As winter holidays approach, grieving families sometimes struggle.  The world celebrates and they grieve.  We offer a place to come for exchanging ideas on how to cope, to receive support and to honor and remember our loved ones.

Reading Through Grief

Pathways is offering a new workshop in which we read and discuss books that discuss grief and how to live through it. The group will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 5:00-6:00 PM by Zoom.
