Ministry of Hope and Healing
For all who have lost a loved one
Members of this ministry make contact with grieving families to express sympathy and comfort and offer assistance. The parish also provides two nine week seminars (Fall and Spring) and a program during the difficult holiday season to help the grieving. Information on these programs can be found at cheshirecatholic.org/events. Each year on November 2, All Souls Day, the parish holds a Memorial Mass and a reception for the families of those who have died during the year. Visit cheshirecatholic.org/trueevents for information on the current seminar.
