Seasons of Hope is open to all those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. With the help of scripture, prayer, reflection and small group discussion, we give voice to our unique journeys of grief, and find healing, comfort and spiritual growth.  Seasons of Hope is centered on Jesus Christ and grounded in the healing wisdom traditions and practices of the Catholic Church. The ministry is lead by trained facilitators and many parishioners who have taken part in prior seasons have found this program helpful as they grieve.
