Sayre, Pa. – Guthrie Hospice will offer a 5-week Community Bereavement Support Group each Wednesday from April 2 through April 30, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the 2 North conference room at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa.

Facilitating the support group will be Rev. Jeffrey Wilkinson, chaplain and bereavement coordinator; and Karen Robinson, hospice social worker. Topics will include the grieving process, coping skills, communication and stress management. The Community Bereavement Support Group is an outreach community service sponsored by Guthrie Hospice that is intended for anyone who has experienced a loss.
