A Support Group for the Bereaved

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 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. Seasons of Hope sessions help us explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection activities and faith sharing.

Seasons of Hope 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 loved ones 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 to the Church, the Almighty, and other people of faith who are also mourning.

Come and be comforted.

Seasons of Hope meets for six consecutive weeks. Any parishioner who is mourning the loss of a loved one is encouraged to attend and invited to bring a guest. Please join us each week.

The ideal is for the group to start and end the six week journey together. If you cannot attend Week 1, or might have to miss more than one week, please discuss with us in advance.

For registration and additional information, contact Linda Marion at (619) 322-2210 or lindadornemarion@gmail.com.

Additional 6 week Seasons of Hope series will be offered 4 times per year, each with a different focus theme for that season.
