Support Groups

Our Collaborative support groups help many people cope with the emotional aspects of dealing with grief and illness by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges.  These groups also allow people to learn from others facing similar situations.

Starting Thursday, September 23rd SHSTM has added two new bereavement support groups read more

Bereavement Support Group:  The Collaborative Parishes of Sacred Heart and St. Thomas More will host a unique support group for the bereaved. This program is rooted in Catholic tradition, and conveys God’s consolation through scripture, prayer, reflection and sharing our faith. We hope that you will prayerfully consider our invitation to attend. Beginning September 18th, we are offering TWO Bereavement Support Groups. Mourning the loss of someone you love is never easy, but there is hope. The next session of this support group meets for six Thursday mornings from 10:00-11:15 in the St. Thomas More Parish Hall and Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 8:15 in the Sacred Heart Parish Hall. People from both parishes are, of course, welcome to come to either group, depending on which time is more convenient for you

We are uplifted by knowing that the Lord blesses those who mourn. Together, let us find Jesus in the midst of our loss.

Our Collaborative Parish Cancer Support Group meets every Monday at 1:00 pm in Sacred Heart Chapel to pray A Rosary for Life. Following the Rosary, members of the group share their thoughts as they explore topics provided by the Christian resource, Together Living With Cancer. Having cancer is often one of the most stressful experiences in a person's life. Our collaborative support group provides cancer patients, and their families, resources to cope with the emotional aspects of cancer by offering them a safe place to share their feelings and challenges. We learn from others who have faced or are facing similar situations. Come join us in prayer for yourself or for someone you love who is struggling with the effects of cancer in their lives. All are welcome!
