Bereavement Support Groups

Ministerio del Duelo
Keep in mind that adapting to the death of your loved one does not mean forgetting. It means finding a way to cherish the memories while continuing to move forward in life. It means adjusting to a world without the deceased while holding a place for them in your heart.


We offer the following programs:

Grief to Grace 

Day:    Wednesdays for five weeks

Time:  10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Place:  St. Andrew's Room (near the Parish Office)

Understanding and Processing your Grief


The next eight-week program will be scheduled for the end of February. Please watch for the date. Registration Required. A fee of $ 25.00 for materials.


Registration forms are available near the church entrances or in the parish office. Once completed, please return the form to the parish office.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
– Helen Keller


Grief has no time limit and requires us to feel the feeling and express our needs to others.  Be brave and share your feelings about your loss and the pain you are experiencing. Embrace your emotions and refrain from hiding or denying your feelings. Let those around you know that you need their support, and ask for help when necessary.
