Seasons of Hope

Seasons of Hope is a six-session grief support group format centered on Jesus Christ and grounded in the healing wisdom, traditions, and practices of the Catholic Church.

Each year, many families face the loss of loved ones who are members of the parish.  Our Catholic tradition provides funeral support and now Seasons of Hope can bring that caring spirit into the difficult period that follows when grief can overwhelm.  It also serves those who mourn loved ones from outside our parish community. They too may feel isolated, empty, and broken-hearted.

For those searching for hope, a Seasons of Hope group is a nurturing link of the Church, the Almighty, and other people of faith who are also mourning.
