Conversation about Grief and Loss
Join seminarian Jennifer Helminski for an in-person group conversation about our experiences of grief and loss. Whether it is a particular loss, or a communal experience like we have in the pandemic, we need space to gather to cope, to process, and to mourn.
The Journey of the Holy Family (an event through Trinity Church, Wall Street) January 12, 19, 26 at 6 pm on zoom

"Transformative Justice seeks to provide people who experience/d violence with immediate safety and long-term healing and reparations while holding people who commit violence accountable within and by their communities. Accountability includes stopping immediate abuse, making a commitment to not engage in future abuse, and offering reparations for past abuse. Such accountability requires on-going support and transformative healing."
St. Mary's offers an occasional series of Learning Circles to explore how to bring transformative justice to our community. Next series planned for Lent 2022 . Registration required, please contact the Parish Office.
