Grief Ministry, Divorced & Separated

During this time of pandemic many can be experiencing stress and filled with worry. We turn to our faith in God in these moments and sometimes talking and praying with a brother or sister in faith is just what we need to ease our mind when we are struggling. The sharing of our faith and the accompaniment of one another on the journey is a core value of the Archdiocese. If you would like to talk, pray or otherwise faith share with a representative of our Local Church, please respond to the email address below and leave your contact information with a preference of time to be called. One of our prayer team members will reach out to you. May God bless you and ease your suffering.  We are here for you and look forward to connecting.
