Our Lord assured us that those who mourn are blessed and that they shall be comforted. Seasons of Hope offers the bereaved an opportunity to come together to share God’s love. With the support of the faith community, we can give voice to our unique journeys of grief and find healing and spiritual growth. Seasons of Hope sessions help us explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection activities, and faith sharing, and is 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 ones who are members of the parish. Our Catholic tradition provides funeral support. Seasons of Hope can now 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 to the Chruch, the Almighty, and other people of the faith who are also mourning.
