Our grief support groups will utilize the “Grieving with Great Hope” series and be facilitated in small groups with both virtual and in-person options. The groups will offer a prayerful, practical and personal approach for adults who have experienced the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandchild, friend or other loved one. We all experience loss in our unique way and it is through prayerful reflection, practical learning and personal fellowship that we mourn. In mourning, we begin to build our bridge to a new and different life.

We have three groups for you to choose from and each group will run for 7 consecutive weeks. Each session will utilize a portion of the Grieving with Great Hope video series and then the Parish Counselor will facilitate a conversation on the content and invite personal sharing.

The three groups will be offered on the following days and times. Please pay careful attention to whether the group will be virtual or in-person:

  • Tuesdays, 9:15-10:45am, beginning on March 2This group will meet virtually. It will be facilitated by our Parish Counselors, Laura Aguirre and Allison Woolford.
  • Tuesdays, 2:00-3:30pm, beginning on March 2 – This group will meet on-site at St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church in Spring. It will be facilitated by our Parish Counselor, Larry Freeney,.
  • Saturdays, 11:00-12:30pm, beginning on March 6This group will meet virtually. It will be facilitated by our Parish Counselors, Lauren Guido and Matthew Pici.

Registration is required and there is no cost to participate. Please sign up for only one group. Space may be limited.

We would like to invite all high school ladies to join two of our female parish counselors for our virtual “Girl Talk” series. Girl Talk will take place on different Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:00PM in April and May, with an aim to dive deeper into understanding how we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and how our mental health ties into this.

Week 1: The Power of Mindset
This first week will be used to get to know one another and discuss more about the group itself. We will talk about our mindset and how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact our daily lives. We will also talk about any goals we have for ourselves or the group.

Week 2: Who am I?
In this meeting, we will take a look at our personal strengths and our self-worth. We will look at our own identity and what makes us each uniquely a daughter of God.

Week 3: Building Community
In our third group, we will focus on relationships with others. What is a healthy relationship? What is an unhealthy one? Vulnerability and communication will be another topic of this group.

Week 4: Self-Care and Wrap Up
What does self-care actually mean? We will spend this last session talking about what self-care can look like, why it’s important, and recognizing that self-care may not look the same for everyone. We will also be wrapping up the group and checking back to see if any goals were met and/or how we can continue to work toward any goals set for ourselves.

Platform: The Girl Talk conversations will be conducted on Zoom. These are not counseling sessions, nor are they confidential in nature. They are intended to be meaningful conversations facilitated by parish counselors, and they will welcome input from the female youth ministers and high school girls who join in.
