Season Of Hope Grief Support Group
A support group for someone who has lost a loved one.
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 one who are members of the Parish. Our Catholic tradition provides funeral support and now Seasons of Hope can carry 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.
Seasons of Hope meets for six consecutive weeks. You are encouraged to attend one or all sessions and you are invited to bring a family member or guest. Please join us. Call the Parish Office at )405) 340-0691. No charge for the sessions.
