Seasons of Hope is a six-session grief support group format 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 bring 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.

 

The Next Session is

October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29. November 5, 2018

 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Raphael House. Call 405-340-0691, ext. 197 to register no later than September 21.
