Society promotes many misconceptions about grief (e.g., emotions are only acceptable at funerals, grief is brief, only immediate family are impacted, …etc.) that may hinder the recovery process. There is no single pattern to grief. The benefits of a support group with others who have experienced the loss of a spouse or partner helps universalize your experience. You are not alone, although it may feel that way sometimes. Listening to the experience of others who have traversed rough waters usually lends helpful insights into personal practices. For example, ‘how do you make the big house feel less empty’? ‘I don’t want to cook only for myself’. Please join us every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the rectory parlor, beginning March 8th, to explore supportive ways grief and loss can be the entry point of God’s healing in your life.

24-May 2 God Comes to Meet Us
Save the Date! Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar will visit our district for conversation on the evening of Wednesday, May 25. The meeting will be in-person only and is open to clergy and lay people. Please use the Register link to register in advance.
Join us as we start our new series on The Catholic Table, based on the book of the same name by award-winning author Emily Stimpson Chapman. Come and discover what the Church teaches about creation, the body, feasting, fasting, the Eucharist—and so much more. The series is 6 sessions. Every Thursday from 7:30-9pm on Zoom. Contact Carolina at 393-3365 for the link to join.
Come explore the beginnings of the early church movement as studied through the Acts of the Apostles. You might call Acts the ‘part II’ in Luke’s narrative. First, he told us in his Gospel that Jesus is the Christ who God raised from the dead for the forgiveness of sins. He then will explain in Acts how Christians are to live now that the return of Jesus is not expected within their lifetime. Join us every Saturday of May & June at 8:00a.m. in the parish library to dive deep into God’s word. Begin your weekend with scripture and you will not regret it!
