in this season of sorrow,
we turn to you.
Weakened with sadness,
we shed tears beyond number.
May those you send to help us
bring your love and consolation.
In this season of sorrow,
we lift up our broken hearts to you.
Heal us with your tender mercy and
make this a season of hope.
Trusting in your inﬁnite kindness,
we ask this of you
with the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Our Lord assured us that those who mourn are blessed, and 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 a loved one. 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. 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.
