Dr. Chris Stravitsch, President

“Have you ever felt the need to see a counselor who shares your faith? Sometimes in life, we hit road bumps or we notice habitual ways of thinking or acting that come from something that perhaps happened to us. A Christian Counselor can help us to let go of the past, see ourselves and situations more clearly, and to live with more freedom in the present. At our parish we are blessed to have a Rejoice Catholic Counselor. I assure you that the counselors from Rejoice believe in the importance of God’s grace to help bring us wholeness and will encourage the living out of the Catholic Faith for you or your marriage.

– Fr. Victor Perez, Pastor

Grief Support Group by Rejoice – 5 Sessions

Grieving with Great HOPE is a five-session grief support group in a DVD and small group discussion format that will be led by Rejoice Counseling Apostolate. It offers a prayerful, practical and personal approach for adults who have experienced the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandchild, friend or other loved one. We all experience loss in a unique way and it is through prayerful reflection, practical learning and personal fellowship that we mourn. In mourning, we begin to build our bridge to a new and different life.

This free grief support group is open to parishioners of Most Holy Trinity-Angleton and St. John the Baptist-Alvin. It will be held at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Mondays 12:00PM-2:00PM on January 7, 14, 21, 28 & February 4. Purchasing a $20 workbook is optional. To register or for more information contact the Parish Counselor, Kelsey Johnson, at [email protected]
