Loss leaves us empty - but learn not to close your heart and mind in grief. Allow life to replenish you. When sorrow comes, it seem impossible - but new joys wait to fill the void. -Pam Brown
HOPE (Hang On, Pain Ends) Ministry is a support ministry for those who have recently lost a loved one.
Our mission is to provide compassionate support to parishioners grieving the loss of a loved one.
As companions on the journey, we offer non-judgmental, active listening, emothional support, and prayer at a monthly, or as needed, visit for up to a year.
If you or a loved one is interested in a bereavement companion, please contact our Ministry Coordinator, JoAnn Heller at 630-513-2709, or Team Member Jim Naso at 630-461-0030.
