GREATER ORANGE COUNTY CHAPTER 
PARENTS OF MURDERED CHILDREN (POMC)

For the families and friends of those 
who have died by violence


Monthly Meetings 
Every 2nd Wednesday at 6:30 PM

Zion Lutheran Church (In the Gym)
222 N. East Street
Anaheim, CA  92805​

We are a volunteer-run group made up of families and friends who have lost someone we love due to violence.  There is no judging here.  And if you don't feel like talking, that's alright - we'll be here for you when you're ready.  Just being with others who understand your pain and grief is a comfort and you are not alone.
(Due to our current COVID-19 circumstances please note you MUST bring your own chair, a mask. No drinks or snacks will be provided. If you must have a drink or snack please bring it.)


2021 Candlelight Vigil 
 This year we will commemorate our 29th Annual Candlight Vigil
 a Name Dedication Ceremony (It will be our 2nd virtual vigil.)   Each year during National Crime Victim Rights Week (Support   Victims Build Trust Engage Communities.) We remember victims   who have died in violent crimes and honor them across the   country with a memorable ceremony that shows they are forever 
 remembered.


Encouragement 
 March comes with people searching four-leaf clovers,   leprechauns, rainbows, and pots of gold. As you search for four-   leaf clovers, look up and smile at your loved one and when you get   to the end of the rainbow, allow your heart to be filled with love.


 Selfcare 

 • Take a walk and get some fresh air. You never know who you   might run into. 
 • Take a nap- Studies show that a 20-30 minute nap can improve   mood, alertness and performance.
 • Listen to your favorite music.
