Compassionate Friends meeting at church set

Southern Indiana Compassionate Friends will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at Vienna Baptist Church, 11 W. Leota Road, Scottsburg.

The Compassionate Friends organization, founded in England in 1969 and established in the United States in 1972, has grown to more than 600 chapters across the nation and has a presence in at least 30 countries.

The support group is committed to parents and grandparents who have lost a child or grandchild so they do not have to walk alone through their loss.

This month, the group will be helping those grieving by sharing the importance and benefits of talking to others who have experienced a loss.
