IRO serves the needs of those who have experienced the death of a loved one. By the grace of God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we offer prayerful solace, comfort and hope to members of our Catholic Community who are mourning; and offer them a safe group environment to share and move through the grieving process.
Usually, sessions occur on Thursdays, twice a year during the fall and spring; the group meets once-a-week for eight weeks. Each meeting is 1 1/2 hours.
This ministry wants to help mourners understand the stages of grief and through the grief sessions encourage the bereaved to talk about what they are experiencing and to work through their pain in a prayerful Catholic context.
It is available for parishioners, as well as those outside of the Holy Family Community, to continue their faith journey working through the mysteries of death.
