Grief shows us many faces...anger, resentment, loneliness, physical symptoms and isolation. Although the void remains, healing comes in time through tears, prayer, talking with good listeners and giving yourself permission to feel the feelings, whatever they may be. We are here to offer hope, strength and consolation. The volunteers who lead these sessions are highly qualified and experienced facilitators with special grief training.
We offer several programs to suit your needs:
Sharing Grief: Companions on a Journey is for those who are relatively new to the experience of grief-meets 2nd Thursday of the month either after the 8:30 Mass or at 4:00 pm in Rm.147. Info-Amy Rouzer, x112, [email protected].

Come Holy Spirit
Replace the tension with me, with holy relaxation
Replace the turbulence within me, with a sacred calm
Replace the anxiety within me, with a quiet confidence
Replace the fear within me, with a strong faith
Replace the darkness within me, with a gentle light
Replace the night within me, with your day
Replace the winter within me, with your spring
Let me see myself as "You" see me, that "I" may see You as You promised, and be healed according to Your Word
I ask this in the name of Jesus our Lord
