Seasons of Hope series for the bereaved to begin May 1
St. Mary Star of the Sea/Holy Savior Church in conjunction with the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington’s Office for Marriage and Family Life will offer a new eight-week regional bereavement support series, Seasons of Hope, beginning Thursday, May 1, at the Father Connell Parish Center at Holy Savior Church in Ocean City, Md.
Seasons of Hope is a Catholic support program for the bereaved searching for hope and healing. The program is centered on Jesus Christ and grounded in the healing wisdom, traditions and practices of the Catholic Church.
“Any Catholic who is experiencing the grief that follows the death of a loved one may benefit from Seasons of Hope,” said Nancy Burke, director of the Office for Marriage and Family Life. “The program was developed by a nationally recognized hospice care and bereavement specialist and has been used successfully since 2007 in other dioceses and parishes. All who are suffering the loss of an adult loved one are welcome to participate.”
Seasons of Hope will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. every Thursday, May 1 through June 19. The Father Connell Parish Center, Holy Savior Church, is at 1705 Philadelphia Ave. A fee of $8 for the entire series will cover the cost of program materials.
