Join us for these annual seasonal rituals to remember your loved one(s) who have passed away.

Winter Tea

Take part in an annual community ceremony which honours your loved one, and celebrates your grief journey with poems, candles and music.

Limited spots are available due to considerations of COVID-19 safety.   As this will be an indoor gathering, we ask that you be vaccinated to attend.  To learn more or attend the Winter Tea, call (604) 740-0475 or email
