Marriage Resources:


Each year many of our parish families face the loss of loved ones.  Our Catholic tradition provides funeral support and our program, Seasons of Hope was able to carry that caring spirit into the difficult period that follows when grief can overwhelm.  Unfortunately, due to Covid, we are unable to offer our Seasons of Hope program in person.  If you have recently experienced a loss and you are looking for some comfort and solace, contact Linda in our pastoral care office at  She will be happy to connect you with Susan Ikenhoffer, our Bereavement Committee Chair.  Susan will be happy to reach out to you to offer you a caring ear and words of comfort.
