The month of September is traditionally dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows.**** Most holy Virgin and Mother, whose soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the Passion of thy divine Son, and who in His glorious Resurrection wast filled with never-ending joy at His triumph; obtain for us who call upon thee, so to be partakers in the adversities of Holy Church and the sorrows of the Sovereign Pontiff, as to be found worthy to rejoice with them in the consolation for which we pray, in the charity and peace of the same Christ our Lord. Amen. ********* Seven Sorrows of Mary: • The Prophecy of Simeon. • The Flight into Egypt. • The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple of Jerusalem. • Mary's meeting Jesus on the Via Dolorosa (not found in the New Testament) • The Crucifixion of Jesus on Mount Calvary. • Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross. • The Burial of Jesus by Joseph of Arimathea. ***** Our Lady of Sorrows, Pray for us!

Grief Ministry


Journeying Through Grief is a Christ-centered ministry, whose purpose is to reach out to those in mourning and offer them comfort and help. This includes anyone experiencing a significant loss, whether it is the loss of a loved one or a friend. It is based on a program of the Archidiocese of Saint Louis whose Mission Statement says it best: 'To provide a safe and supportive experience enabling each person to begin to transform her/his life from a time of mourning to a time of healing.'  The four week sessions are held twice a year, in March and October. Registration is recommended. It is open to anyone in mourning, regardless of when the loss occurred, whether recently or in the past. Monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month. The progam is not limited to SEAS parishioners. Guests are welcome.
