Memory Meadow Online

An invitation to Memory Meadow online: 11am, Saturday, 13 June 2020

You may have taken part in our Memory Meadow remembrance event before, or attended Tree of Light, at Christmas time? Perhaps you are navigating that very difficult time of being recently bereaved. Or it may be that someone you cared about died a long time ago now, but that doesn’t mean you don’t still feel that loss and experience the pain of grief – which can be felt at any time, and can be just as intense years later as it was at the beginning.

Whatever your circumstances, if St Catherine’s cared for your loved one, we are here to support you in the months and years after someone you love dies. That usually includes our Memory Meadow bereavement event in June, which usually takes place at Priory Park in Reigate.

This year we all find ourselves in very different and difficult conditions which mean that we cannot gather together at Priory Park to reflect and remember, with others who understand.

St Catherine’s will still hold a Memory Meadow remembrance event this year – but it will be online. We do hope you will join us, and that you will invite family and friends to take part too.

Memory Meadow online is:

  • Completely free to join in
  • Suitable for all ages
  • Non-religious and open to people of all faiths and none
  • A chance to gather with people who understand, to reflect and celebrate the connection we have with those we love.

You can tune into the Memory Meadow online event in one of two ways:

  1. Watch it on the St Catherine’s Facebook page from 11am on Saturday, 13 June
  2. Come back to watch it on this page – where it will be added on the morning of the event, ready for the 11am start.

If you can’t make it at 11am on 13 June, you can also watch at a later time that’s convenient for you.

A message from Lisa:

“Because you can enjoy Memory Meadow online from your own home, I’d encourage you to take full advantage of that by doing so in whatever way is meaningful to you and brings you most comfort.

I have chosen some simple, short readings that my colleagues have told me they’ve found comforting and uplifting, so I am really looking forward to sharing them with you and anyone you ask to share the event with you on the day.

So please join me for Memory Meadow online. Because being able to spend time with people who understand your experience is so important, and so is making time and space to remember our connections to the people we love, who are no longer here.”
