Description:

Guidebook and 4 Journals

Seasons of Hope consists of a comprehensive guidebook for leaders and four participant journals. The program offers twenty-four scripture-based sessions for grievers, organized into four six-week seasons, three times as many as other books or bereavement programs. Each season is self-contained and non-sequential so that participants may begin with any of the four seasons and parish leaders may schedule the six-week seasons as fits the particular pastoral needs of each individual parish.

The Guidebook leads bereavement ministers through all the necessary steps of creating and sustaining small bereavement groups. It also provides detailed scripts and helpful hints for each of these twenty-four sessions. The four seasons follow the same pattern and might be used consecutively in a parish, but are also designed to stand alone.

The Participant Journals—one for each season—are used in group gatherings and for home-journaling. Each week offers a theme, commentary, scripture citations for further reading and spiritual exercises drawn from Catholic tradition. The sessions each follow the same simple format and flow with a comforting blend of commentary, scripture, prayer, simple group exercises, faith-sharing and Catholic traditions.

The Facilitator's Pack includes the Guidebook and one of each of the Participant Journals.

Ave Maria Press

Serving the Catholic Community for Over 150 Years!

Ave Maria Press, established in 1865 by Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., Ave Maria Press remains committed to its core mission in more than 150 years. It began as the third apostolate of Holy Cross in the US and published "The Ave Maria" magazine by Fr. Sorin with three goals in mind: to glorify Mary, highlight Catholic families, and present the best American Catholic writing.

Ave Maria thrived for over 100 years and became the most popular Catholic magazine in the country. Under the leadership of Rev. Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C., the magazine grew and started publishing hardcover books. Holy Cross religious, including priests, brothers, and sisters, played essential roles in the magazine's operation. After the magazine ceased publication in 1970, Ave Maria Press focused on book publishing and has since published works by notable Catholic authors.

Now owned by the United States Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Ave Maria Press remains one of the oldest Catholic publishing houses, specializing in religion textbooks, ministry resources, and books on prayer and spirituality.
