The St. John-St. Paul Collaborative is dedicated to both the prayerful and practical support of those experiencing loss. We are offering two special programs in the coming weeks for those who are grieving:

  • A six-week “Seasons of Hope” group for anyone searching for meaning and consolation after the death of a loved one.
  • A one-day “Emmaus Ministry Retreat” for grieving parents.

Seasons of Hope

If you have experienced the death of a loved one and are searching for meaning and consolation, we invite you to join our upcoming Seasons of Hope group, which begins on January 26.   Seasons of Hope is a Christ-centered group where we will be able to share and learn from each other as we walk together in faith on our unique journey of grief.   The group will be facilitated by Kelly Meraw and Anne Mears, and we look forward to welcoming you with great love.  

We will meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:00-6:30pm in the St. Paul Parish Hall for six sessions:  

January 26, February 2, February 9, February 16, February 23, March 2

Pre-Registration Required

Please email Kelly Meraw or Anne Mears with any questions.

I tried many bereavement groups. They were good but something was missing. I knew it was God. When Seasons of Hope began here, it was the answer to my prayers.
