Seasons of Hope

When you or someone you care about is suffering from the loss of a loved one, the process of grieving is a natural part of healing. Grief, however natural, can be intense and experienced in very individual ways. It is sometimes hard to know, “Is what I’m going through ‘normal’ or natural?”

The Seasons of Hope Adult Bereavement Support Group at St. Andrew the Apostle offers a safe and understanding environment for those whose loved one has died. This program, rooted in Catholic tradition, conveys God’s consolation through scripture, prayer, reflection and sharing our faith. Each Seasons of Hope session is offered for six consecutive weeks.

NEW sessions began Monday, March 4 at 6:30pm in Room A.

Please plan on bringing a Bible. Each participant will be given a Seasons of Hope Journal. Registration fee is $20 to cover cost of journal and materials. Payment is to be paid on the first day of session (no one will be turned away for inability to pay.).

Our Lord assured us that those who mourn are blessed and that they shall be comforted. This group offers the bereaved an opportunity to come together to share in 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. Sessions help us explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection activities and faith sharing.

At the core of our ministry, we strive to walk together as we explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection activities and faith sharing.

For those searching for hope, a Seasons of Hope group is a nurturing link to the Church, to our Lord and to other people of faith who are also mourning. Come and be comforted!

Pre-registration is required and we appreciate your registration one week prior to start of each session by calling the Parish Office or emailing
