Every three months, you will receive a newsletter containing prayer intentions for our parish, diocese, and world.

Open Grief Support Group
Are you struggling after a loved one’s death? Our parish bereavement ministry is offering an open grief support group for those who have lost a spouse, significant other, parent, sibling, adult child, adult relative, or friend. Grieving is a natural response to loss that affects the body, mind, heart, and soul. It is a sacred process unique to each person but also has common characteristics. Those who are grieving find support, wisdom, and growth in community. The group will meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 2:00 until 3:00 in the Prayer Room. The first session is Tuesday, July 11th. To find out more or to sign up, call Melissa DiFini at 440.331.4255 X 105 or email email@example.com.
