Absent Friends Film Series: The Fault in our Stars

March 27, 2020


The following message is from The Hospice of Waterloo Region, host of the Absent Friends Film series:

Due to public safety concerns regarding COVID-19 and recognizing how important it is to play our part in making the rate of transmission as slow as possible, the Hospice of Waterloo Region has decided to postpone organizational events indefinitely.

The health and safety of our clients, volunteers and staff is our primary concern. It is with an abundance of caution that we take these steps and we appreciate your understanding.

7:00-9:30 p.m.
Conrad Grebel, Great Hall
140 Westmount Road North Waterloo, ON N2L 3G6

Attend a film screening of The Fault in our Stars and follow-up discussion from 7:00 – 9:30p.m. as part of the Absent Friends Film Series.

Based on the New York Times best selling book by John Green, this movie follows two adolescents living with cancer who fall in love.

The Absent Friends Film Series challenges us to talk about the often taboo topics of death, dying and grief.

Supported by the RIA, the Hospice of Waterloo Region is collaborating with St. Jerome’s University Lectures in Catholic Experience to host a series of films. Each showing will be followed by a small group discussion led by special guests. The series hopes to inspire us to build a more compassionate community.
