7 week journey on Monday Evenings | February 6 to March 20, 2023
7pm to 8:30pm | St. Therese Conference Room (upstairs in Trinity Building)
Week 1: Introduction and Overview
Week 2: Beginning to accept the reality of loss
Week 3: Experiencing the pain of grief
Week 4: Adjusting to the environment without your loved one
Week 5: Reconciling grief with your daily life

Believing that grief is a natural response to loss and a necessary process in adjusting to change, we endeavor to support the bereaved in their mourning. Support Groups strive to facilitate:
- Expression of Emotion and Thought about loss, including sadness, pain anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, solation confusion or numbness.
- Challenges that often follow a loss can include: disorganization tiredness, trouble concentrating, sleep deprivation, vivid dreams and changes in appetite.
We support of the wonderful work by sister Christine and Good Shepherd Services throughout the year as needed. If you are interested in helping our ministry, please contact us through the form below.

During Advent Season, The Angel Giving Tree program invites parishioners to choose “angel” gift tags from a display to provide a requested gift for a child or adult in need. Gifts support organizations in our area such as Good Shepherd Services and the CARE Team at Norcross High School. Parishioners can also spread Christmas joy by participating in The St. Nicholas Christmas Program, where MOQ families can adopt a family in need, as identified by St. Vincent de Paul, and purchase gifts & household items to brighten the family’s holiday season.
